JARA-STAPFER, Karina; GONZALEZ-SALDANA, Jaime  y  CORNEJO-OVALLE, Marco. What remains to be done to provide oral health quality to adults in Chile?. Int. j interdiscip. dent. [online]. 2023, vol.16, n.1, pp.5-6. ISSN 2452-5596.

There are common risk factors between diseases of the oral cavity and chronic non-communicable diseases, and it is known that they are related to general health and quality of life. In Chile, dental care in the public system is mainly aimed at the child and adolescent population, and only some of the dental programs include care for adults. Most of the adult population attended has access through the Primary Health Care Reinforcement Program (PHCRP), whose sustainability over time is not possible to determine. So, it is important to focus on the population with the greatest cumulative damage and without guaranteed access to dental care today.
