National Oral Health Surveillance System Child Indicators
This dataset includes information from data for School year-end 1994 through year-end 2019. State oral health surveys are the data sources for these indicators. States periodically conduct independent screening surveys of a probability sample designed to be representative of all third grade students in the state.

This dataset is provided by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division of Oral Health.Some states also conduct surveys of students in other grades in school, or of Head Start program enrollees. This surveillance activity is voluntary. States submit their data to the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors (ASTDD), where the survey design and data collected are reviewed for quality and against the criteria for inclusion in NOHSS, before being sent to CDC for inclusion in Oral Health Data.
NOHSS is designed to monitor the burden of oral disease, use of the oral health care delivery system, and the status of community water fluoridation on both a national and state level. It is also designed to track oral health surveillance indicators based on data sources and surveillance capacity available to most states. The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) were instrumental in developing the framework for chronic disease surveillance indicators, including these oral health indicators.
Oral Health Data includes the following indicators of children’s oral health from the National Oral Health Surveillance System (NOHSS):
– Caries Experience. Percentage of 3rd grade students with caries experience, including treated and untreated tooth decay.
– Untreated Tooth Decay. Percentage of 3rd grade students with untreated tooth decay.
– Dental Sealants. Percentage of 3rd grade students with dental sealants on at least one permanent molar tooth.
Oral Health Data displays prevalence estimates for these indicators provided by state oral health programs. If a state provided both a crude estimate and an estimate adjusted for non-response, the adjusted estimate is displayed. Detailed information on estimates are a vailable over the Data Portal.
The data value unit used for this dataset is percentage.
