Dental public health is a discipline of dentistry that provides leadership and expertise in population-based dentistry, oral health surveillance, policy development, community-based disease prevention and health promotion. Prevention should be at the heart of any effective healthcare strategy. Dental/ oral disease/ conditions are largely preventable yet may influence the course of systemic diseases/ conditions. Studies had shown that dental/ oral health is essential for overall health. In reference to 2030 vision for healthcare system reform, prevention is at the heart of the reform plan for healthcare system reform. Dental health should receive equal attention like general public health in order to achieve overall health promotion
