Abstract

Health is a required element for a balanced human existence. The patients’ inability to pay for medical services limits their access to medical care and aggravates a disease which could be cured earlier with fewer resources. Beyond the impact of dental pathology on the individual through pain and discomfort, with subsequent consequences on general health and quality of life, negative effects are reflected on the entire community, affecting the healthcare system well as the economic system.
