Oral diseases have significant impact on the health and well-being of the Karma Kagyu Monks and Nuns. As the goal of KHCP regarding the oral health policy is to prevent and control of the determinants of oral disease and promote oral health amongst the monks and nuns of the Karma Kagyu Monasteries. Most of the oral diseases are preventable and better oral health can be facilitated through several of health promotion and intervention using appropriate technology and manpower.
