Faglige udfordringer for fremtidens tandpleje, set i et samfundsodontologisk perspektiv

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The oral health care systems in the Nordic countries will face considerable future challenges. Although the prevalence of oral diseases has been reduced, social inequality in oral health still persists. In addition, disadvantaged population groups apparently have a high level of untreated oral diseases. This makes it difficult to fulfill the aims of the oral health care system, aims established by the health authorities in each country. The resources allocated for health and health care are, however, under strain, and to reach the aims some changes are required, i.e. change of the structure is needed including changes of the distribution of manpower in the oral health system. However, the oral health care system is based, at least for adults, on market mechanisms in terms of demand of oral care from the patients. Therefore, reaching the aims of the oral health care system is a challenge.
