The regularity of visits to the dentist is one of the key elements in the broadly understood prevention of oral health. 18% of the surveyed group of 163 residents of Poznan and the surrounding area did not take any visits to the dentist during the past 12 months. Studies have shown that with the increase in the level of education reduces the share of people who quit their visits to the dentist at least once a year. The residents of Poznan and the surrounding area much more care about the regularity of visits to the dentist of their children, rather than on his own. Among the reasons for not treating are listed a lack of cash, long waiting times, the fear and waiting for disappearance of disease's symptoms, which is also confirmed by the results of surveys other authors.

Key words: dental check‑up visits, dental treatment need, frequency of dental visits, dental care, dental fear, dental visiting habits, health education.
