Oral microbiota is an important part of the human microbiota. Culture-independent sequencing methods have revealed remarkable diversity within the oral microbiome, which is composed of diverse conventional bacterial species, fungal and viral (bacteriophage) components, as well as recently identified nano-sized parasitic Candidate Phyla Radiation (CPR) organisms. Effective management of oral microbiome-related diseases calls for a more comprehensive understanding of the impact of the oral microbiota on host health and disease, which requires a holistic view of intra- and cross-kingdom interactions among members of the oral microbiome, as well as microbial-host interaction.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize that the human oral microbiome plays a critical role in human health and disease
  • Understand that dysbiosis of microbiome could lead to disease, local and/or systemic
  • Understand the remarkable diversity of oral microbiome, which goes beyond simply bacteria
  • Understand the importance of achieving a holistic understanding of the oral microbiome from an ecological perspective
