People with disabilities experience many challenges that affect their oral health With the growing body of evidence linking oral health to systemic health, preparing nurses to provide evidence-based oral health care is becoming a priority. Although oral health has been integrated into the nursing curriculum in the United States, the extent to which oral health care has been integrated into the undergraduate nursing or other health professional education program in Australia is not known.
