Is there any ethnomidcal study on the enthicity of people in the modern world and their dental problems. Or does anyone talked to dentist and they told stories on tooth issues related to ethnicity or cultural background.

There will be links via vitamin D status, though it doesn't sound like that's exactly what you're asking.

One hygienist told me probably due to my ethnicity, I had tooth decay. I wouldn't take what she says seriously, since she was incompetent in her job. There has been scientific studies where it's the western diet that causes tooth decay.

I've read somewhere that ancient South Americans had bad teeth because of high consumption of corn.
