Description:
The aim of the survey was to establish a standardised database of the oral health status of 5-year-old children in the North East, in line with the 1994 National Health Strategy Shaping a Healthier Future16. In addition, it was hoped that the findings of the survey would help develop quality public dental services in the North East, with a focus on peoplecentredness and equity, as outlined in the National Health Strategy 2001, Quality and Fairness - a Health System for you. The objectives were to: • Measure levels of dental decay in 5-year-old children living in fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas of the North East in 2002. • Compare levels of decay in 5-year-olds in the North East with national figures for this age group in 2002. • Compare decay levels in the North East in 2002 with those of previous studies in 1995 and 1984. • Compare levels of dental decay in the three Community Care Areas of the North East. • Measure the impact of disadvantage (using parental medical card ownership as an indicator of disadvantage) on levels of decay in this age group. • Identify geographic areas within the North East where decay levels are highest. • Measure dental health care practices and parental attitudes to dental treatment for this age group. • Measure use of dental services by this age group within the North East.
