ABSTRACT:
Nutrition counselling has an important place in the dental care setting given the clear relationship between dietary factors and dental caries and the association between obesity, diabetes and periodontitis. Moreover, it is an important step in determining whether nutritional deficiencies/imbalances exist and assessing the need for necessary referrals. Limited resources, lack of financial incentive, inadequate skills in nutrition counselling and time constraints may restrict many dental care professionals from providing nutritional counselling as part of their routine preventive oral disease strategy. This review will provide evidence to suggest that nutritional counselling can be well received by patients and their families and they can induce meaningful changes.
