Oral Health Messages for the Australian Public: 2022 Update


In 2009, a highly effective consensus statement was published and enabled a focused, and strategic approach to oral health promotion in Australia. However, in the 13 years since the statement, the evidence base underpinning oral health promotion in Australia has grown. An update aligning with the general health messages recommended by Australian health authorities is required.

We are pleased to announce that the Melbourne Dental School, in conjunction with the Australian Dental Association, will lead a collaborative expert working group to update the Oral Health Messages for the Australian Public.
