Until the 1970s, quality of life had been largely used to describe societies. Starting in the 1970s, the term began to be used when analyzing individuals’ wellbeing (Campbell, 1976; Andrews & McKennell, 1980). In psychology, wellness began to be considered as a crucial aspect of a person’s life, and health psychology and positive psychology began to develop as independent areas of research around this time (Peterson, 2002). While it took the health-oriented research community until the 1970s to start focusing on the concept of quality of life, one could argue that patients’ interactions with the healthcare system have always been affected by quality of life issues, such as suffering from pain or not being able to function.

Considering this situation, this chapter has to go beyond offering an introduction to OHRQoL considerations and a discussion of their relevance for dental researchers, clinicians, and educators. It has to provide an analysis of the research conducted so far and provide a description of the current status quo of this research field. Based on the review of the oral healthrelated research conducted during the past decade, three conclusions will be discussed. First, the argument is made that OHRQoL can be a powerful communication tool when advocating for any kind of oral health-related services for patients, may it be related to educating patients about oral health promotion, or teachers or other professionals about considering oral health-related issues in their educational efforts, or even politicians involved in making healthcare-related decisions.
