A collaboration between the FDI World Dental Federation and the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM), have developed a minimum Adult Oral Health Standard Set (AOHSS) for use in clinical practice, research, advocacy and population health to be used globally. 

Using a rigorous, consensus-driven approach involving international oral health experts and patients and consumers, FDI and ICHOM’s AOHSS includes 25 items directed towards patients that include demographics, the impact of their oral health on oral function, a record of pain and oral hygiene practices, and financial implications of care, and items for clinicians to complete (medical history, a record of caries and periodontal disease, and types of dental treatment delivered).

The methods and results of the study entitled, “Developing a Standard Set of Patient-Centred Outcomes for Adult Oral Health – an International, Cross-Disciplinary Consensus,” have been published in the FDI’s International Dental Journal.
