The Dental Scenario

With 80% of the total population having some sort of Oral & Dental problems and only about 1300 Dental Surgeons, a projection concludes that a single Dental Surgeon has to look after nearly twenty thousand population which seems almost impossible in today’s context in Nepal. According to international standard, one Dental Surgeon is supposed to provide quality service to four thousand population only. According to this standard, our country needs nearly 6500 Dental graduates apart from the manpower required to cater the increasing population and need of growing number of Educational Institutions. If we come down to Terai region of Nepal which houses nearly 60% of the total population with few Dental graduates at the Zonal Hospitals, the picture becomes more pitiable.
