Rights and Permissions

India has a vibrant culture of customs and beliefs, yet the perceptions on health care remains consistent. Health-care delivery systems hinge onto the general health problems, unfortunately, overlooking the oral health. Most often, people seek dental care, but only in emergencies. Inclusion of oral health in the general health policies would initiate in the people of our country, a habit of regular dental visits. The dentists through these routine screening visits, could then not only promote preventive measures but also detect disease at the onset itself, halting its further progress. The awareness regarding oral health thus generated, could reach out to even rural India. This, in turn, improves the well-being of the society. This short communication aims at highlighting the need of oral health policies in India that would pave a way for a more healthy India.
