The average number of consultations of dentists is far lower than the average number of consultations of medical doctors. Among the EU Member States in 2017, the Netherlands ranked first, with 2.8 consultations of a dentist on average per year, followed by Czechia and Lithuania (1.6 each). In Romania, Cyprus and Denmark each person consulted a dentist on average 0.5 times per year or less.
