Sjögren's syndrome is a multi-system chronic inflammatory disease of the exocrine glands. Inflammation of the salivary glands leads to reduction in salivary output, which imposes a significant impact on oral health. Dentists and dental hygienists are the primary healthcare providers to identify early signs and symptoms of Sjögren's syndrome. Early diagnosis of Sjögren's syndrome is fundamental for effective management of the disease.
