Title: Effective utilization of dental informatics in dentistry


Dental Public Health Informatics is the effective utilization of information and information technology for surveillance, prevention, preparedness, and health promotion to improve population oral health outcomes, where the specialists focus on population-level issues and solutions. It combines information technology, computer science, and cognitive science to assist in the management of information from the perspective of healthcare as well as groups of individuals while associating the environment, work, and living places and that's only the tip of the iceberg.

The major spheres in public health informatics are biostatistics, community health education, and Geospatial Information Systems (GIS), including teledentistry, which make wide use of various software programs. It has become critical presently because of the advancements in information technology, new challenges in the public health system, and changes in the Medicare delivery system. In the present scenario, the need for public health informatics is growing because of new challenges related to antibiotic resistance, emerging infections, and chemical and biological terrorism.

The presentation would focus on the significant principles of and challenges against the present-day dental public health informatics, while additionally highlighting the lack of centralization for bespoke systems, the absence of adequate agreed data models, and the scope for further investments in technology and electronic pipelines, which impedes reporting and collection.

Key words: dental informatics, information technology, public health.
