OBJECTIVE To analyse the cost-effectiveness of a screening programme and follow-up interventions for persons with dysglycemia who are identified during a dental visit. METHODS This study is a secondary analysis utilizing data from two relevant publications. Those studies identified persons with dysglycemia who were seen in a dental school clinic for routine dental care and determined compliance with a recommendation to seek medical care. The response site was 59.4%. The Archimedes disease… 
The Outcomes of the Dental Patients’ Screening for Diabetes Mellitus
The aim of our research was to study the results of diabetes mellitus (DM) screening in dental patients in a dental clinic. Two models of DM screening during a routine dental examination in a dental
Screening for dysglycaemia in dental primary care practice settings: systematic review of the evidence.
TLDR
Screening for dysglycaemia in dental offices effectively identified high-risk patients requiring triage for glycaemic management, and considerations for future clinical trial design were advanced to establish an evidence base amenable to meta-analysis of the relative translational value of glycaemia screening in dental settings.
Effect of screening for type 2 diabetes on healthcare costs: a register-based study among 139,075 individuals diagnosed with diabetes in Denmark between 2001 and 2009
TLDR
Healthcare costs were lower among individuals with incident type 2 diabetes in the screened group compared with the unscreened group and the screening programme was associated with a cost saving per person with incident diabetes over a 5-year period of €2688.
Evaluation of a questionnaire-based diabetes screening concept in German patients with stage 3 or 4 periodontitis - a practice-based study.
TLDR
The FINDRISC questionnaire is appropriate for patients with stage 3 or 4 periodontitis and can be recommended in dental practice setting, and patients with previously unknown DM showed higher mean age, more missing teeth, a higherperiodontitis stage, and more frequently teeth with suppuration compared to the diabetologically inconspicuous individuals.
Attitudes and opinions of Oral healthcare professionals on screening for Type-2 diabetes
TLDR
For the successful implementation of a screening programme, several barriers need to be addressed, and effective medical screening would require collaboration between oral health and medical and other health professionals, as well as clarification of legal and reimbursement issues.
Use of dental practices for the identification of adults with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes mellitus or non‐diabetic hyperglycaemia: a systematic review
TLDR
This review aimed to synthesize evidence associated with the use of primary care dental services for the identification of undiagnosed non‐diabetic hyperglycaemia or type 2 diabetes in adults, with particular focus on the pick‐up rate of new cases.
The burden of Diabetes, Its Oral Complications and Their Prevention and Management
TLDR
Dental professionals should be part of the multidisciplinary team that helps individuals with diabetes and improve glycemic control among diabetic patients, as well as prevent oral complications of DM.
Diabetes Mellitus Related Knowledge and Awareness - A Survey Among Dental Students
TLDR
There is an adequate level of awareness about diabetes mellitus among dental students, but the dental students lack knowledge about the risk factors associated with diabetes Mellitus such as obesity and they are not aware of certain blood investigations for diabetes mell Titus such as HbA1C.
Chairside Diabetes Screening: A Survey of Dental Providers at the Largest Municipal Healthcare System in the United States
Materials and Methods: A 29-item survey was designed in a web-based platform (Survey Monkey) and distributed in November 2020 to 264 dental providers (attending dentists and residents) within eleven
Correlation between diabetes mellitus and number of restored, carious lesions and missing teeth: A retrospective radiographic evaluation
TLDR
The diabetic patients were found to be at high risk of losing teeth compared with the non-diabetic patients, and the prevalence of fixed partial dentures was also higher among diabetic patients.

TLDR
Diabetes risk assessment and education by dental professionals of affected individuals unaware of their status may contribute to improved patient outcomes.
Screening for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes in dental offices
TLDR
There is a substantial burden of dysglycemia in patients seen in general dental practices, and simple chair‐side screening for dys glycemia that includes or does not include fingerstick random capillary glucose testing can be used to rapidly identify high‐risk patients.
Age at initiation and frequency of screening to detect type 2 diabetes: a cost-effectiveness analysis
TLDR

Identification of Individuals With Undiagnosed Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes in a Danish Cohort Attending Dental Treatment.
TLDR
Routine measurement of HbA1c levels in dental offices, eventually restricted to those at risk, may help identification of individuals with DM and prediabetes at early stages of disease, which may prevent future complications.

TLDR
Screening for type 2 diabetes and impaired glucoseolerance, with appropriate intervention for those with impaired glucose tolerance, in an above average risk population aged 45, seems to be cost effective.

TLDR
Analysis of the data suggests that oral healthcare professionals have the opportunity to identify unrecognized diabetes and pre-diabetes in dental patients and refer them to a physician for further evaluation and care.

TLDR
The validity of the prediction models regardless of the test used for diabetes or pre-diabetes diagnosis in the clinical setting are demonstrated and underscore the contribution dentists can make.
Screening for diabetes in an outpatient clinic population
TLDR
If diabetes screening is an effective intervention, opportunistic screening for diabetes may be the preferred method for screening, because there is substantial potential for case-finding in a medical center outpatient setting.
