The 2011 Institute of Medicine (IOM) reports, Advancing Oral Health in America and Improving
Access for Oral Health for the Vulnerable and Underserved, highlighted the importance of viewing oral health as inseparable from total health.  The IOM and other leading health organizations have also called for the integration of oral health and primary care to enhance access, quality, and outcomes for individuals and populations.  The resources below provide ideas, insights, and promising practices for integrating oral health and primary care practice.  The resources can be adapted to support improvements in community care models.
