The health care is one of the world's largest and fastest-growing industries and it can form an enormous part of a country's economy, an aggregation of sectors within the economic system that provides goods and services to treat patients with curative, preventive, rehabilitative and palliative care. The modern health care industry is divided into many sectors and depends on interdisciplinary terms of trained professionals and paraprofessionals to meet health needs of individuals and populations.
It is typically divided into several areas, the United Nations International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC) categorizes as generally consisting of:
- Hospital Activities
- Medical & Dental Practice
- Other Human Health
Dentistry care is broadly considered important for overall health and its treatment is carried out by the dental team, which often consists of a dentist and dental auxiliaries. It is the study, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases, disorders & conditions of the oral cavity particularly the teeth, and to an extent related conditions in the maxillofacial area. Oral diseases are major public health problems due to their high incidence and prevalence across the world with disadvantaged affected more than other socio-economic groups.
The majority of dental treatments are carried out to prevent or treat the two most common oral diseases which are dental caries and periodontal disease. Commonly involve the restorations of teeth, extraction or surgical removal of teeth, scaling and root planning and endodontic root canal treatment.
