  • Dental Public Health Practice, Infrastructure, and Workforce in the United States 3
    Course Release Date: 1/2/2019

    About the Course:

    Dental Public Health (DPH) is that part of dentistry providing leadership and expertise in population-based dentistry, oral health surveillance, policy development, community-based disease prevention and health promotion, and the maintenance of the dental safety net. DPH and the private practice model of care delivery together bear the responsibility of assuring optimal oral health for all Americans - individuals and populations.

    One of the greatest barriers to oral health care is a lack of dental services. This can be called the greatest unmet oral health need in the United States. Many people living in the United States have poor oral health due to lack of access to care, because oral health is not universally integrated into primary or behavioral health-care services. As a result, dental care is usually set apart from other types of health care. Poor appearance resulting from dental problems can contribute to social isolation, lower wages, and loss of self-esteem. Furthermore, poor oral health is associated with increased bacterial systemic exposure and increased inflammatory factors that can lead to adverse health outcomes, such as uncontrolled diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory disease. Facilities and programs are available under the public health framework to educate and treat vulnerable populations and improve oral and overall health.

    This basic level course, appropriate for all dental professionals, outlines dental public health, its focus, infrastructure, and how the dental public health workforce strives to improve populations oral health.
