Oral health of Australian children: the National Child Oral Health Study 2012–14

Despite some improvement, child oral health has remained a significant population health issue in Australia in the 21st Century. The evidence described in this report has pointed to substantial social patterning of oral health status, dental service use and dental and general health behaviours among Australian children. The identification of the numerous factors and the relation between them at an individual child, family, school and community level poses both difficulties and opportunities for programs to make improvements to and reduce social inequalities in child oral health.
