U.S. government commissions new report on oral health

By DrBicuspid Staff

August 1, 2018 -- The U.S. government has commissioned a new surgeon general's report on oral health. The new report will be the first update since the original, landmark report was published in 2000.

Like the original surgeon general's report on oral health, the new report will help to define key issues affecting oral health in the U.S. and convey a vision for the future. It will also evaluate how recent trends have changed the oral health landscape in the past 20 years, such as new workforce models, the ongoing opioid epidemic, updated research on the oral-systemic health link, and Medicaid expansion.

The surgeon general's report on oral health is a coordination between the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Surgeon General, National Institutes of Health, and National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. A release date for the new report has yet to be announced.
