The article offers the author's comments on the technical advancements being made in the field of dental health care. According to him, although such achievements are enhancing the quality of diagnosis and care but simultaneously it is distancing the dental health care from the reach of common men. He says that there will always be people with higher income who will fuel such research and development but the concern remains that whether such developments will be available to the majority.
