New Survey Shows Americans Value Oral Health But Knowledge Gap Remains
Date:5/15/2008

ristles wear out and can become less effective at cleaning teeth and gums.

On a related note, many dental professionals are talking with their patients about the connection between oral health and overall health. Nearly half (49 percent) of adults say their dental professional asked about overall health at their last dental appointment. In comparison, only 23 percent say that their primary care physician or internist asked about their oral health at their last appointment.

"By empowering people with information about good oral care habits, we can help prevent painful and costly dental problems, and potentially impact overall health," adds Klaus. "During National Smile Month and throughout the year, we encourage people to talk to both their dentist and doctor about the connection between oral and overall health."

Oral Health America is the nation's premier, independent advocacy organization dedicated to improving oral health. The National Smile Month Survey was conducted by telephone within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Oral Health America and Philips Sonicare between May 1 and May 4, 2008 among 1,001 adults ages 18 years and older. A full methodology is available. National Smile Month comprises a variety of initiatives to raise awareness about the connection between oral health and overall health. A simultaneous campaign is running in the United Kingdom through the British Dental Health Foundation. More information is available at http://www.nationalsmilemonth.org and http://www.oralhealthamerica.org.
