A previous study among Amsterdam 5-year-old children showed that on average, the older the child at the onset of toothbrushing and the less frequent the toothbrushing, the more life time caries experience it had. The aim of the present study was to assess correlates of these two caries risk factors, in four ethnic groups. A further aim was to...

With the aim of evaluating the relationship between consumption of sweet snacks (sugars) and caries prevalence, a secondary analysis was performed on data obtained in an epidemiological study of 5-, 8- and 11-year-old children, all participants of Regional Institutions for Youth Dentistry. The children's primary and permanent teeth were examined...

This investigation was first, to assess the oral health of 11-year-old children in four ethnic groups in Amsterdam; second, to assess their dental behaviour and third, to identify potential determinants of frequency of toothbrushing. Representative samples of 97 Surinamese, 209 Moroccan, 128 Turkish and 102 Dutch children were examined orally...

The aim of this study was to assess differences in dental health between socioeconomic and ethnic groups in a cohort of 5-yr-old children born in 1982 and in a cohort of 11-yr-old children born in 1976. A further aim was to evaluate the putative role of dental behaviors as intervening factors between ethnicity and maternal education on the one...

The aim of this study was threefold: first, to assess the oral health of Turkish, Moroccan, Surinamese, Dutch and "other" 5-yr-old children living in Amsterdam; second, to identify risk indicators for caries, in addition to ethnicity; and third, to identify potential risk factors related to differences in caries experience in these children....

A study was executed to investigate the relation between the use of fluoride tablets by children in the age period 1.5-6 yr on the one hand and the caries experience at the age of 6 and 15 yr and the prevalence of fluorosis at the age of 15 yr on the other hand. The year of birth of the child, the motivation of the mother to engage in preventive...

Data in a WHO report relating caries prevalence and the use of fluorides in different European countries were compared with data obtained directly from investigators in the field of oral epidemiology. The reliability of DMFT indices of 12-year-old children, mentioned in the WHO report, appeared sufficient to make comparisons between countries on...

In 1973, 1976, 1979, 1982 and 1988 caries investigations were carried out amongst 6- and 12-year-old primary schoolchildren to study the effectiveness of a dental health campaign begun in 1973. This campaign and the school dental health services were stopped in 1985. In all the years, except 1988, radiographs formed part of the caries...
