After visiting 14 cities from Brazil where important efforts to improve the SUS (Unified Health System) were being made,, the researcher used his main findings to propose a participant agenda-building process for collective oral health, integrated to the new scope of collective health at the municipal level. He notes the strategic role health professionals can play in a new historical proposal for Brazilian society.
