Oregon Smile Survey 2012 Report
The 2012 Oregon Smile Survey is an important step in understanding and addressing the problem of tooth decay. Tooth decay is a significant public health concern and causes needless pain and suffering for many of our children in Oregon.
This survey is the third in a series of assessments and presents the findings of oral screenings of 1st-, 2nd- and 3rd-graders attending Oregon elementary schools during the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 school years. Surveys were previously conducted in 2002 and 2007.
