Abstract

Oral health promotion is an integral part of health promotion, as oral health is a determinant of general health. Integrated health promotion is the co-ordination and integration of dentistry and medicine and of all communications tools, avenues, and sources into a seamless program that maximizes the impact on end users at a minimal cost. It results in a health system geared for health promotion, prevention and early intervention for at risk individuals and groups, minimising the onset of disease and preventing hospital admissions. Integrated health promotion is a more effective, efficient and evidence based health promotion approach. Building interdependent systems to address issues and opportunities and sharing of resources, make an affordable pathway for achieving a common goal. Integrated approaches are the most cost- fective and realistic way to implement sound interventions for oral health. Dentistry and medicine need to harmonize for sustainable modern healthcare.
