Oregon Surveillance System

The Oregon Surveillance System is a system of 29 data points designed to provide easily accessible statewide information on a wide variety of oral health issues. Current surveillance data are included in the Oral Health Data Book. In future years, annual surveillance system data will be posted in graph form.

Data are currently available only at the state level. Future plans for the system include expansion of the surveillance system to include other relevant measures (for example, oral and pharyngeal cancers), and a breakdown of data to the regional, county, and local level where possible.
