Despite the integral contribution of oral health to general health status, it continues to be treated as a marginalized and less important practice of health care. Minimizing its importance begins with how U.S. dental professionals are educated. The National Academies Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education held a public workshop in November 2022 to discuss definitions of community-engaged oral health and its application within, between, and across health professions. Discussions emphasized lifelong learning, the social determinants of health and community engagement, and the development of innovative approaches and models for oral health workforce education and training in a global context. This Proceedings of a Workshop summarizes the discussions held during the workshop.
