Looked at overall, dental care represents a fascinating mix of the public and private spheres. It has a strong component that many people argue can be left to individual responsibility, private funding and market processes. But it also has a strong public dimension.

Analysing the nature of these challenges and pointing to ways in which they can be met is the purpose of this report.
