18 National Oral Health Surveillance Plan Progress Report NIDCR and CDC met with nationally-recognized expertsThemes emerged from the meeting:Oral health data must serve a multiplicity of need — for research and for public health/practice and policy.Strengthening communications with advocates and stakeholders will help define goal-directed data-capture methods and data analyses.The granularity and frequency of oral health surveillance data collection has resource implications.Movement toward self-reported data collection and other non-invasive data collection may enhance the evenness of oral health data collected across populations.Efforts must continue to integrate oral health with systemic health, with implications for both oral health monitoring and oral disease prevention and management. A summary of the meeting and the background paper have been finalized and are under review prior to submission for publication in a major public health journal.Communications and collaborations with CDC, NIDCR and NCHS continue
