The aim was to recommend practical oral health policies for Timor Leste.

Local stakeholders were consulted to discover what had hindered the execution of previous recommendations, and a review of oral health policy documents was undertaken to find recommendations relevant to Timor-Leste.

Oral health promotion legislation, an increased oral health workforce focused on screening and preventive dental care, improved Infrastructure and transportation are needed. The Dental Service monthly report should be redesigned to obtain oral health data.
