  Scope of the journal

The Journal of Primary Care Dentistry and Oral Health (JPCDPH) has been established with the aim of promoting primary care dentistry and oral health research. Most oro-dental diseases are preventable. Dental and oral health impact the overall health and quality of life of a person. Poor oral health leads to systemic illnesses. Failure to prevent the progression of preventable oral disease many times leads to serious adverse outcomes. Oral health and primary care dentistry should receive the attention they deserve. No standard referral system exists between primary care specialists and dental care providers. A formal professional network between medicine and dentistry doesn't occur in routine. The general health delivery system as organized currently fails to ensure mandatory dental and oral health. The disparities are more visible for low rural and underserved populations.

The journal fosters a dialogue between primary care, dental, and oral health professionals. Dental public health deals with population-based dentistry, disease prevention, the promotion of dental health, and the surveillance of oral health. The role of dental and oral health is not optimized in primary care and public health context. Widespread surveillance of oral health including the monitoring of problems such as oral cancer and tobacco use is possible in primary care settings also. Community-based care for the prevention of dental disease and the promotion of oral health health

The primary care setting uniquely offers the opportunity to deliver oral health care to high risk and particularly to those who bear the greatest burden of diseases. Primary care providers, dental surgeons, and their teams are required to work together and collaborate. In this partnership, the role of the primary care provider and the team is to assess and reduce risk, screen for signs of early oral disease, implement preventive measures, and identify patients in need of dental care. Whereas the dentists have a role in preventing oral disease and identifying patients at elevated risk.
