RODRIGUEZ APARICIO, Aileneg; RODRIGUEZ CALZADILLA, Orlando L.  y  CASTILLO ARANGO, Mabelys. Analysis of the oral health situation in a doctor´s office located in the Southern part of Guines municipality. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2006, vol.43, n.2. ISSN 0034-7507.

Integrality in medical assistance work is of great importance; family dentists are the ones in charge of organizing and planning oral health actions, as part of the healthcare team. A study was made from September 2003 to May 2005, which covered a randomly selected sample of 20 families with a total of 56 persons. The nuclear family predominated in the studied population that is prioritized; the 0-18 years-old group and the elderly prevailed in the refered population. The oral disease that mostly affected the sample was masticatory dysfunction followed by dental caries, parodontopathies and malocclusions. It was concluded that it was necessary to perform promotion, prevention and education for health activities so as to raise the level of awareness of the population, to reduce the number of sick and disabled patients and incorporate them to either group of healthy patients or healthy with risk patients. The times at which sweet foodstuffs are taken were changed and more favorable ways of food consumption were reached.
