BACK COVER

Where There Is No Dentist is a companion volume to the village health care handbook, Where There Is No Doctor. Together, the books encourage people to take the lead in caring for their own health. This approach to health care implies respect for the dignity of all persons, as well as confidence in their resourcefulness.

Village health workers can use this book to help people care for their teeth and gums. Health begin with the felt needs of the people-treating the dental problems they have now. Then they work to prevent the same problems from returning.

Thus, Where There Is No Dentist shows how to diagnose and treat dental problems and also suggest new ways to work for better dental health in the community.
