In the new era of global health, a closer integration of oral health with the wider body of medicine and health systems will be essential. This will ensure that oral diseases are addressed alongside the other non-communicable diseases. Mainstreaming patient-centred primary prevention, underpinned by transforming educational and workforce systems to create future leaders in global oral health, is vital if the challenge of reducing inequalities in oral health and the aspiration of universal coverage of oral health services are to be realised.
