Association between education level and dentition status in Japanese adults: Japan public health center-based oral health study
Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology, 05/10/2012
Ueno M et al. – The results suggest that the level of education has an independent impact on dentition status in a group of Japanese adults, even after taking into account oral health–related factors. Therefore, providing appropriate oral health information from an early age within a compulsory school education program appears necessary to enhance health literacy and lessen the inequalities in dental health by educational level.
