Take The Oral Health Challenge
Yesterday, Johnson & Johnson, the makers of LISTERINE®, launched The Oral Health (OH) Challenge at the 2017 British Dental Conference and Exhibition.
The OH Challenge is a simple survey tool created for dental health care
professionals to test their knowledge in relation to soft tissue health and preventive
care, and to identify any gaps in current professional knowledge.
We want you to take part, so we cordially invite all delegates to stand C13 to
complete this important survey challenge. Your involvement and the results
gathered will help create bespoke articles for the dental profession, designed to
increase understanding of these all-important issues.
The OH Challenge is supported by Iain Chapple, Professor of Periodontology,
Consultant in Restorative Dentistry and Head of the School of Dentistry at the
University of Birmingham, and Julie Rosse, a past President of the British Society of
Dental Hygiene and Therapy and practicing hygienist.
Professor Iain Chapple commented, ʻThe OH Challenge is an educational initiative
for the oral healthcare team at all levels, to help individuals identify any gaps in their
knowledge and follow-up with the subsequent educational material that will be rolled
out throughout 2017. I genuinely believe this will help all clinicians to remain up to
Julie Rosse added: ʻI am sure we all like to think that we strive to stay up to date with
current concepts and thinking but, indeed, how do we know if our sources of
information are the latest available and evidence-based? This simple survey
challenges what every clinician truly knows about soft tissue health, whilst the
content that follows will help you to manage your patientsʼ oral health.ʼ
The OH Challenge is available online for all dental health care professionals. Please

supporting programme of evidence-based content that will be released in instalments
over the course of the year.
