As a twenty-year follow-up to the seminal Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) will release the new report Oral Health in America: Advances and Challenges in the fall of 2021.

The report will illuminate new directions in the prevention and treatment of oral disease; identify disparities and inequalities in oral health care; and propose innovative strategies for ensuring all Americans share equally in the benefits of oral health. A forthcoming website and related publications will highlight data and key findings for oral health professionals, stakeholders and interest groups.
