National report reveals growing awareness of oral-systemic health

Delta Dental released its 2024 State of America’s Oral Health and Wellness Report in May, a national analysis of consumer opinions and behaviors related to oral health.

The report revealed a strong consumer understanding of oral health’s integral role in overall health, with a majority of adults believing that their dental visit is just as important as a physical.

The report finds a greater awareness among adults of oral health’s connection to specific health conditions and diseases such as respiratory illness and diabetes.

Gen Z and millennials are most likely to appreciate this connection, according to the report.
