Abstract

Various women's health concerns (e.g., hormonal changes, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, immune deficiencies, respiratory diseases, eating disorders, substance use/abuse, sexually transmitted infections, stress, poverty, poor nutrition, and early childhood caries) are associated with oral-systemic etiologies that can either cause or form as a result of poor oral health. Nonetheless, the intersections of biological, social-behavioral, and structural factors that impact women's oral-systemic health are rarely examined. We argue for the need for transdisciplinary research, grounded in team science, for incorporating and transcending multiple discipline-specific frameworks and models to examine the complexity of women's health issues holistically across the lifespan.
