Abstract

Dental health is a critical component to a society’s overall health. The national oral health article highlighted the high levels of dental caries in six-year-old children in Bhutan. Poor dental health in childhood has long reaching negative effects through adulthood. This is an important pediatric health problem which needs to be addressed to help eliminate and prevent a host of health-related complications and expenses.
