Dental Care Too Expensive

Published måndag 10 oktober 2005 kl 11.44

A new study reveals that half of low income earners here can’t afford to go to the dentist.

Conducted by Statistics Sweden for the Swedish Public Health Institute, the survey indicates that the risk of poor dental health is six times higher among low income earners, and 30 percent more than last year can’t afford needed care.

Dental care is not included in Sweden’s National Health Service.


Last month the newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported that common dental surgery can cost six times as much here as in some neighboring countries.
