Children are vital to the nation s present and its future. Yet communities vary considerably in their commitment to the collective health of children and in the resources that they make available to meet children s needs. This is reflected in the ways in which communities address their collective commitment to children, specifically for health including oral health. The ultimate responsibility of there health rests with the government of that country. This book puts into perspective a fact that that there are few who cannot utilise services from hospitals or dental clinics, even though having equal rights to health as granted by our constitution; one class of such children belong to primitive tribal groups. Text from the book illustrates high sugar consumption, dental fluorosis, poor oral hygiene, and untreated dental diseases among tribal children. Facts don't change and facts here are strong enough to merit a response. What we need is sensitivity of response. Under these circumstances, the implementation of preventive programs including restriction of sweets in school premises for the tribal children may be the key to good oral health.
Authors focus area of research includes primary health care issues; Risk factors for oral diseases among socially disadvantaged, marginalized and ethnic minority groups; Socio psychological circumstances as correlates of oral health inequality; Oral health policy issues - focusing specifically on implementation of National oral health policy.
