Description:
Survey of the incidence of dental caries in pupils attending full-time day schools in the Roscommon, Longford, Leitrim, Cavan and Monaghan Health Authority areas. Section 2 of the Health (Fluoridation of Water Supplies) Act, 1960, empowers the Minister for Health to make regulations as to the manner in which and the extent to which health authorities shall arrange for the fluoridation of water supplied to the public by sanitary authorities through pipes. Before making such regulations in respect of any health authority, the Minister must, under the same Section of the Act : (a) cause to be made a survey of the incidence of dental caries in a representative sample of pupils attending full-time day schools in the functional area or functional areas of the health authority or health authorities to whom the regulations relate, and (b) cause to be presented to each House of the Oireachtas a report on the survey so made. In accordance with these requirements, this report of the results of a survey carried out by the Medical Research Council of Ireland in the Roscommon, Longford, Leitrim, Cavan and Monaghan health authority areas, including a copy of the Council's report on the survey, is presented to each House of the Oireachtas. The procedure adopted in making the survey, which is described in pages 5 to 10, was similar to that employed in the surveys in (a) the Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow areas; (b) the Cork, Limerick and Waterford areas; (c) the Louth, Wexford, Laois and Galway areas; (d) the Tipperary (North Riding), Tipperary (South Riding), Kilkenny and Carlow areas; (e) the Kerry, Clare, Westmeath and Offaly areas; and (f) the Meath, Donegal, Sligo and Mayo areas, the reports on which were presented to each House of the Oireachtas on 25th April, 1962, 31st July, 1962, 8th March, 1963, 3rd June, 1964, 20th October, 1964 and 18th March, 1965 respectively. Particulars of the numbers, classified by age and otherwise, of the school children examined in the course of the current survey are given on pages 8 to 11 and in the Tables of the Council's report. The survey discloses an extremely high incidence of dental caries among children attending full-time day schools in each of the five areas covered by the Report.
