ANALYSIS
Dental treatment Statistics reveal very alarming figures. 
From the increasing numbers of attendance on an annual basis indicates that people do not place higher priority in dental hygiene. 
which can be seen in the increasing number of tooth extractions and fillings on an annual basis.  
However it is pleasing to see a significant decrease of 25.8% in fillings in 2002 after years of steady increases.
