Other medical desertification: socio-economic determinants and barriers to access to dental care

The project, which intersects the production of territorial discrimination with social inequalities in health, aims to examine the consideration of oral healthby health professionals as part of primary health care and the relationship of populations to their oral health. Starting from the observation of a limited interest of social research for oral health, it is based on a comprehensive approach (representations, perceptions and practices of actors) identify barriers to access to oral health care and propose ways to improve the provision of oral health care and information on access to oral health care for the most vulnerable people living in peri-urban and rural areas (Île de France, Oise, Aisne).
