This report describes a survey of the oral health of three groups of school children (2nd grade, 7th grade, and 11th grade) in Connecticut. The survey sought information on the children's decayed, missing, and filled teeth, deciduous and permanent. The survey sample involved schools within each of the state's five geographic regions; the schools were stratified into three income levels (using the number of children participating in the free or reduced-cost lunch program as a proxy for economic status). The report presents survey methods, results, and recommendations.
