The author reflects on neglect of the dental care sector in Canada. The article mentions that seven percent of total health expenditure is on dental care. However, health care reports ignore dental care as the private sector dominates 95 percent of dentistry. The Canadian Health Measures Survey will include oral health. The author urges increased grants for oral health care and suggests that the medical and dental professions must work together.
