Due to the complexity of women's health issues that involve the interplay between oral and systemic health, a multidisciplinary approach to research and practice is critical to ensure health and quality of life among women across the lifespan. The 2nd Annual Conference entitled 'Transforming Women's Health: Discovery, Development and Delivery of the Oral-Systemic Connection', was held in Tampa (FL, USA) on 26-27 January 2013. The conference addressed complex oral-systemic women's health issues structured by three organizational pillars: discovery, development and delivery, with overarching topic areas of oral human papillomavirus infection, autoimmune conditions and the Affordable Care Act. This conference served as an effective method for bringing together multiple disciplines to discuss emerging women's health issues.
