The dental health of children attending a school dental service, with a focus on remoteness (AIHW)
The dental health of children attending a school dental service, with a focus on remoteness: Child Dental Health Survey Australia 2009 describes the dental health of Australian children examined by school dental service staff in 2009 and provides insights into the dental health of rural children. Dental decay was relatively common, with around half of children examined having a history of decay. Children in Regional and Remote areas were at increased risk of dental decay in their baby teeth compared with those in Major cities.
