Description:
[n 1997 the North Western Health Board commissioned the Oral Health Services Research Centre at University College Cork to oversee and direct an epidemiological survey of children's dental health in the counties of Donegal, Sligo and Leitrim. The fieldwork for this survey took place in 1997 and 1998 and involved roughly four months work each on the part of four dental teams. The study was designed to be the most comprehensive dental survey ever undertaken in the North Western Health Board. It not only examined dental decay levels in children at ages 5, 8, 12 and 15, but also examined items such as gum disease, orthodontic treatment need, damage to teeth from accidents, staining of teeth and attitudes to dental care. The study was designed to examine differences in dental health status between the counties and also, within each county, between the areas which were fluoridated and those which were not. The study was also synchronised with a parallel study in the Western Health and Social Services Board in Northern Ireland, which comprises the counties of Derry, Tyrone and Fermanagh, using comparable survey criteria. This aspect makes this report unique among the regional dental health surveys in Ireland.
