Dental health is influenced by the interactions of a multitude of factors at different levels, including geographical area, population, family, and individual levels. Understanding these influences of those interactions can inform effective and relevant policies and practices to improve dental health. The social and economic circumstances at different levels vary greatly between societies and populations. Those variations include economic circumstances, distribution of wealth, availability of technological advances, and even access to basic human needs, such as childhood education. Within a population, there are also marked differences in the way individuals live and prosper. All these differences can have an effect on human health, including oral health and dental care use. Research investigating variation in diseases and health care use between and within populations can inform our understanding of disease distribution and occurrence and help us to plan appropriate preventive measures.
Thank you very much!
