|Title:||Saskatchewan Dental Health Screening Program 2008-2009 Report|
|Publisher:||Dental Health Promotion Working Group of Saskatchewan||Location:||Saskatoon|
A visual dental health screening was conducted in Saskatchewan during the 2008-2009 school year to assess oral health status, monitor trends, identify children with unmet dental needs, determine the schools that are at high risk for caries, gauge the effectiveness of preventive dental programs and to provide needs-based assessment data for the health regions. Following the termination of Saskatchewan Children’s Dental Plan in 1993, the Saskatchewan Health - Dental Health Education Program introduced a screening component to be repeated on a five year interval basis. The 2008-2009 marks the fourth of these screening surveys.
