Systems for the provision of oral health care in the Black Sea countries. Part 11: Serbia.
This paper gives an overview of the provision of health care in the Republic of Serbia. It then gives details of the system for the provision of oral health care, the education of dentists and dental staff, epidemiological data, and costs. It includes details of the state (public) and private sectors of health and dental care in Serbia. Private health and oral health care is based mainly on a number of practices that provide medical and dental care to the population. The state sector has a wider range of types of provision, including complex health care institutions. The number of employees in the private health and dental sector is much smaller than the number of employees in the public sector. Far fewer patients seek private medical and dental care than visit a doctor and dentist in the state sector, which still provides the bedrock for the health system in Serbia.
