The triangle of health: applications for general practice, Part 2: The dental team

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The triangle of health (physical, psychological and social) allows the dental health professional to appreciate the importance of the holistic view of health. The three dimensions of health are as applicable to the health and well-being of the dental health professional as they are to the patients they treat. Parallels between physical, psychological and social determinants of oral health for the patient are related to those for the health of the dental team members. Through an awareness of such matters dental health professionals can promote health for their patients and themselves.
