Conclusion

From humble beginnings as a trade at the turn of the century, dentistry has evolved into a respected biomedical discipline in Malaysia. Reminiscing on the past may seem a needless exercise if there is no distilling of the lessons learnt. In that regard, lessons from the past has seen dental health evolve into a holistic agenda of oral health. Progressive developments through the Five-Year Malaysia Plans have resulted in expansion of facilities within the public sector, alongside human resource development in dentistry. In tandem with our development, the children of Malaysia show the greatest improvement in oral health status. Malaysians now enjoy oral health services comparable to that of developed countries. It is envisaged that the National Oral Health Plan 2020 will chart the course for the future, and provide improvements in oral health which will benefit all Malaysians
