Where There is no Dentist

Where There is no Dentist " Where There Is No Dentist is a book about what people can do for themselves and each other to care for their gums and teeth. It is written for: village and neighborhood health workers who want to learn more about dental care as part of a complete community-based approach to health; school teachers, mothers, fathers, and anyone concerned with encouraging dental health in their children and their community; and those dentists and dental technicians who are looking for ways to share their skills, to help people become more self-reliant at lower cost.

Just as with the rest of health care, there is a strong need to ‘deprofessionalize’ dentistry—to provide ordinary people and community workers with more skills to prevent and cure problems in the mouth. After all, early care is what makes the dentist’s work unnecessary—and this is the care that each person gives to his or her own teeth, or what a mother does to protect her children’s teeth."

This book will tell you everything you need to know about your teeth and how to take good care of them. A sub-title could be - How to help your Dentist !

  1. Great tip. I think the readers of my dental care blog will find this book useful. I'm curious how in-depth the book really is since most people will only respond to something like this at a fundamental level. However, I think empowering people to take charge of their oral hygiene is a good thing. Thanks!
