Among six-year-olds in the group with the weakest dental health, the average number of damaged or already repaired teeth decreased by two percent between 2012 and 2022. This can be compared with the increase of eight per cent in the group as a whole.

According to the Public Dental Service in Västmanland, in addition to the clinics, they work with dental health information in all the county's schools and that children at preschools in exclusion areas receive toothbrushes and toothpaste and help to brush.

In this context, Tandhörnan at Vallby is also mentioned, which is a collaboration between the Public Dental Service of Västmanland and the rest of the health and medical care

"However, there is still a lot to be done because there are still large differences in dental health between different groups in society," says Hannah Al-Wandi, CEO of the Public Dental Service in Västmanland in a press release.
