Brief description Improving access to oral health care for disadvantaged populations is often difficult in the rural setting where workforce capacity is challenged by high demand for episodic care, lengthy waiting lists and absence of recall. For some people, lifestyles are not necessarily chosen or easily changed. Analyzing the stories people tell about their lives in the rural setting will offer explanations of how their doctors and dentists can effectively integrate their oral health and general health.
