Abstract Oral health (OH) is indivisible from general health. Several studies have established the link between morbi-mortality, especially cardiovascular, and bad OH, particularly in the case of edentation. Regrettably, part of the population choses dental care renunciation for financial reasons. The primary care physician (PCP), as the health professionnal with the most frequent and intense contacts with the patients, plays an important role to reinforce prevention measures, OH maintenance and to detect oral pathologies. To fulfill this mission, he has to be trained to endo-buccal examination. Furthermore, both the PCP and the dentist have to proactively build an interprofessional approach to promote patients' OH.
