Abstract

Objective: To report caries experience in the permanent dentition among Mexico City elementary school children and undertakes a comparative analysis of dental caries experience and treatment needs of children of different socio-economic status (SES). Research design: SES was established according to an official measure of economic well-being, that of the family income being high enough to allow the child to attend school in a private institution as opposed to a public school. Participants: A probabilistic sample of 4,048 6- to12-year-old children (47.2% females) was examined using the 1987 WHO caries criteria (546 attended private schools and 3,502 were public school children). Results: The proportion of caries-free 12-year-old children was 28.6% and 9.5% in the private and public schools, respectively (P
