The Australian National Oral Health Plan 20042013 noted the importance of oral health promotion in improving oral health and stated that broad agreement was required on a consistent suite of evidence-based oral health promotion messages. Consistent messages are needed to avoid confusion among the public and to assist the advocacy for oral health being integrated into general health promotion. A workshop was held to examine the scientific evidence and develop consensus oral health messages for the Australian public which are in line with the general health messages recommended by Australian health authorities.
