This book offers an invaluable basis from which fundamental questions on the role of social factors in dental care may be addressed. It ranges from an analysis of utilization patterns and other activities in the lay culture, through to a wider social context of aetiology and social structure, to a consideration of the system of oral health care itself, and the role of the dentist within it.
