Women striving to take Humanitarian ActionThe effect of Dentistry in Humanitarian Aid
For most of us who live well or can afford to visit doctors regularly, dental care is not that big an issue. At least not as much as it is in poor countries. People that can afford it, go to their local dentist on a regular basis. In other cases, some go for oral cosmetic surgery, implants and cleaning. These are not essential inasmuch as they are for appearance purposes. However, for people in poor countries, oral health can be a major issue. In certain cases, it can often turn into a humanitarian crisis.
