Adult Oral Health

The standard set

The ICHOM Standard Set for Adult Oral Health, is the result of hard work by a group of leading dentists, researchers, patient representatives, measurement experts, and economists. It represents the outcomes that matter most to adults in Oral Health. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.
