Abstract
Access to dental health care markedly improves citizens’ dental health status, which in turn improves the national quality of life. This paper aims to review the literatures of the Indonesian Dental Health. All of the related factors that influence dental health were described from 1995 to 2013. Economic and geographic barriers to access dental care still exist in Indonesia. Periodic evaluation on government policy is essential to develop an adequate dental health care system, which then could improve outcomes of the national dental health status.
