There are differences in medical backup in different armies around the world. This is why it is important to get to know the structure and organization of medical backup in different foreign armies. This knowledge will help improve our own dental treatment among the soldiers of the Polish Army system in the future. Each country has a different individual approach implemented for this issue. This is due to structural differences in the army itself, financial contributions for dental care, cultural differences, or experience in missions. The backup looks different in the soldiers’ homeland than on a mission to a foreign country. It often turns out that social and living conditions there are drastically different than those of the native country. These are not only the differences noticed by the authors of this article. There also exist nuances in the decision‑making process in the area of ability to serve inside the home country and outside its borders, and the manner in which highly specialized staff that can serve in the structures of military dentistry is acquired.
