      Dowling, P A; Fitzpatrick, P J; Garvey, M T; McNamara, C M; Department of Public and Child Dental Health, Dublin Dental Hospital. (1997)
      This initial audit of 600 recently assessed Eastern Health Board orthodontic patients suggests that a large number of them (47 per cent) requires referral for routine restorative and preventive dental care. Closer links are needed with general dental practitioners and community dental surgeons to resolve these needs. The trend for a high referral of females and Class 11 Division 1 malocclusion type correlated well with studies in other countries.
