Without integrated and cohesive healthcare, valuable knowledge is lost and patients miss out. Putting the Mouth Back into the Body seeks to develop strategies that could help integrate oral health and general health within community health programs.

We aim to present at the conference ideas that will excite, empower and challenge the broad healthcare community. We will engage a diverse range of expert speakers and delegates, from GPs to nurses, dentists and policy makers, to collaborate and develop strategies for providing the best health care for their communities.
