Men and women in all minority ethnic groups were significantly less likely than the general population to visit a dentist for a regular check-up. The age-standardised ratio for regular dental attendance was lowest for Bangladeshi men (0.24), with Indian, Pakistani, Black Caribbean and Chinese men being about half as likely as the general population to visit the dentist for a check-up. Minority ethnic women had similar patterns of attendance to the men.
