During the past 50 years, there has been an increasing amount of information available on the very broad discipline known as “Preventive and Community Dentistry” a name fast becoming obsolete and being replaced more aptly and precisely by “Public Health Dentistry. Public health is people’s health. Dental Public Health is a professional educational program that transforms one’s thinking from focusing on the individual patient to focus on the community. This program is designed to prepare health professionals who will, over time, improve the capacity of the health care system to address the health needs of population.  Public Health Dentistry forms the basis of dental health care services and holds the key for developing awareness about the social aspects of the profession and the responsibilities towards the community among all those who are engaged in this profession.
