Les inégalités d’accès aux soins dentaires

Cet article provient intégralement du blogue http://hinnovic.org


Teething practically follow us our whole lives. We are born with a tooth capital of which we must take care and the state of our teeth affect us directly. Yet we are not all equal and all when it comes to care for our teeth. There are of course genetic factors, but the knowledge and dentistry have made sufficient progress for a hundred years to enable us to keep teeth healthy, both through prevention than through surgery .Just read our post about the history of dentistry to be convinced that fear of the dentist and pain should not be a hindrance to a visit to dental professionals.

Yet in Canada, there are a significant part of the population which is struggling to gain access to basic dental care, either because these people live in remote areas or because they can not pay the required fees, even for basic interventions such as scaling, much less to treat caries. As mentioned in the note , Canada is a bad student on the matter from the public sector per capita spending on dental care. “The hyperprivatisation” of dental care and the high cost pound the nail, creating a situation of “inverse care law”.

Through two video interviews and an audio interview, we wanted to give the floor to three academics in the issues of inequality of access to dental care.

  • The researcher Christophe Bedos draws us firstly a portrait of difficulties of access to dental care in Quebec and explains the various initiatives to provide dental services at generally excluded populations.
  • The researcher Elham Emami us of its findings and proposes innovative solutions to create a dynamic in disadvantaged and remote areas.

Welcome to a folder that seeks to move the lines and down prejudices, while encouraging dental professionals to rethink their relationships with patients, whether rich or poor.
