Measuring Oral Health in North Carolina

Dental public health's "patient" is the community, so the N.C. Oral Health Section must survey individuals in a community to determine the overall oral health of that community.  The data from both epidemiological surveys and from school oral health assessments are used to provide data for planning programs to prevent oral disease and to provide oral health education to our citizens. 

Oral Health Reports

Various reports address issues and concerns about oral health in North Carolina and nationally.
