2017 Annual Conf Oral Health

 OSAP 2017 Annual Conference - The Safest Dental Visit™ Make It Happen!


 New Definition of Oral Health



A new definition for oral health developed by the FDI World Dental Federation opens the door to a universal definition of oral health. Lead author, Dr. Michael Glick, will bring clarity to what true oral health should mean to the dental profession, our patients, other health care professionals, policy makes and those others we seek to collaborate with and inform. This new common definition is expected to bring stakeholders together to advocate for the importance of oral health; to influence and shape parameters of care, health policies, research, education and reimbursement models; and to shape the future of our profession.

After attending this program, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the evolution and reasons for the updated definition of “Oral Health”

  • Identify the components of “Oral Health”.


  • Describe how this new definition moves from treating disease to treatment of a person with disease.
