Dental Expenses Deter Regular Check-ups
New Zealanders are most wary of dentists and scored the lowest in regular dental check ups because of the huge costs that entail according to the findings of an international dental health survey that was conducted in 29 European and Australasian countries.

Otago University's periodontology senior lecturer, Dr Theresa Madden, revealed that only 40-percent of people underwent regular dental check ups in New Zealand as against 62% in the other countries that participated in the survey. Nearly 55% of those who did not pay regular visits to the dentists said they were rather apprehensive of the costs that will follow a visit.
