There is a ratio of 35,800 den-
tal patients to one dentist in the
public sector. The figure was
given by Health Minister Ter-
rence Deyalsingh as he contrib-
uted on Tuesday to a motion on
the Approved Dental Profession
(Amendment to the Schedule)
Order 2017 in the Senate.
Deyalsingh said the amend-
ment was needed in the sched-
ule to bring dental students
studying at Mona Campus in
Jamaica to Trinidad so they can
acquire their licences and begin
to practice to help improve the
country’s dental healthcare.
The minister said in T&T
there are 425 registered dentists
which gives a ratio of one dentist
for approximately 3,212 people.
“You have 425 dentists...but
you know what is scary...the
number of dentists working in
the public sector is 28 for a pop-
ulation over one million people.
That is untenable,” Deyalsingh
Deyalsingh said what was even
more frightening was the fact
that they have not been able to
increase the figure of the 28 den-
tists for two decades, stating that
people depended heavily on the
public health sector for dental
care services, especially those in
He said: “One dentist in the
public sector is responsible for
the oral care of 35,800 patients,”
stating that “67” dental vacan-
cies needed to be filled.
The minister pleaded with all
Senators to support the motion.
Deyalsingh went to great
lengths to explain how lack of
dental care affects the overall
health of individuals.
He said dental disease was the
number one non communicable
disease in the world.
Research has shown that
children with poor oral health
suffer from growth problems
Deyalsingh said, while there was
a link between oral hygiene and
cardio vascular disease, strokes
and heart attacks in adults.
“There is also a link between
oral care and dementia. There
is another link which some may
find amusing...the link between
poor oral health and respiratory
infections. But there is also a
link between poor oral health
and those same bacteria which
causes plaque in your coronary
arteries...they also cause block-
ages in the arteries that feeds
He said there was a strong cor-
relation between poor oral hy-
giene and erectile dysfunction in
men. Opposition Senator Wade
Mark objected to the motion,
stating that the Government was
using its majority to subvert and
undermine the work of the Den-
tal Council of T&T, which has its
role to play.
“The Government has the ma-
jority so they can do what they
want at the end of the day.”
Mark said T&T was filled with
“quacks and invalids” operating
as dentists, insisting that as a
legislator his job was not to pass
legislation “nilly- willy ” but to
protect the public’s interest.
