    Summary: "Oral health education and promotion is an increasingly important topic in the dental industry, and oral health is integral to our general wellbeing. Oral health education involves practical, face-to-face expert instruction provided by a trained educator to a patient, with specific goals in both preventing oral conditions and diseases and managing pre-existing conditions. Promotion is concerned with making people aware of oral health issues on a local, national and international level through initiatives and programmes. Both education and promotion have the same objective -- to help people achieve and maintain good oral health"-- Provided by publisher.
