The FDI, World Dental Federation has been a respectable and known organization for more than a hundred years now and represents the interests of a worldwide dental care accessible to everyone. The website of FDI represents the means to achieve these goals. Moreover by consulting a database one can obtain central information on manpower in dentistry for each affiliated country. Despite the increased economical prosperity and a growing demand for good oral healthcare, there are still dramatic differences worldwide when it comes to available dental care. Also in the higher developed regions such as Western Europe incomprehensible discrepancies even exist between neighbouring countries.
