Oral Health Inequalities in the Caribbean

“There has been a decline in the prevalence of dental caries in the Caribbean since the 1990’s, yet the burden of oral disease remains high as compared with other regions in the world. A growing gap in health status exists across the social spectrum. Most of the dental services in Caribbean countries are provided through private practice treatment, with a curative focus. Dental care is expensive, making access for the most disadvantaged groups very limited. Increased costs and less investment in dental public health programs are prominent signs of the on-growing health crisis in our Caribbean countries. “
