DENTAL HEALTH STATUS AND DENTAL HEALTH SERVICES FOR RURAL YOUTH.
DONNELLY, CHARLES J.
ALTHOUGH DENTAL PROBLEMS ARE COMMON IN BOTH RURAL AND URBAN AREAS, RURAL CHILDREN SEEM TO HAVE MORE DIFFICULTIES. THE REASONS FOR THIS APPEAR TO BE THAT THERE ARE FEWER DENTISTS PER CAPITA IN RURAL AREAS, AND THAT THE RURAL CHILD IS USUALLY EXPOSED TO A WATER SYSTEM LACKING FLUORIDATION, WHICH IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY OF ADMINISTERING FLUORIDES. HOWEVER, FLUORIDATION IS NOT ENOUGH BECAUSE DENTAL PROGRAMS WHICH PROVIDE ONLY PREVENTIVE MEASURES AND FAIL TO PROVIDE DENTAL TREATMENT ARE INADEQUATE. ADEQUATE DENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMS FOR RURAL YOUTH WILL REQUIRE THE COOPERATIVE EFFORTS OF ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT. (ES)
