The Institute of Public Health has published a report providing an overview of Dental Services and Oral Health in Northern Ireland and Ireland. The report draws on available data and research from Ireland and Northern Ireland and aims to be a resource for policymakers, dental professionals and the general public. It shows that oral health has improved in recent decades but that significant inequalities remain for those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
