Objectives
The youth dental care programme is established as a bridge between the school dental care and the private dental care systems. The programme is based on private dental practitioners, but under a special capitation fee payment structure. Evaluation will comprise the effects of introducing this programme in terms of a) participation rate among eligible students and among eligible dentists, b) range of dental services rendered, c) patient and dentist satisfaction and d) some simple oral health status measurements of students.
