In Hungary all health care professionals needed to be vaccinated three times. (also students in the faculty), otherwise they are not allowed to work/study. Mask is obligatory in health-care institutions only,
nowhere else.

The oral hygiene in general is much worse than before COVID, in many cases selfcare is totally missing (incl. oral selfcare) due to the fact, that mask was covering everything for a long time. More patients
intend to go for extraction than before, and patient’s turnover is much lower….

That is also reported by dental hygienists colleagues recently. We suspect a long term negative effect on oral health.
