Descrizione dell’editore

Introduction Dental hygienists have a long history of providing oral health screenings in community settings, particularly in schools. However, the accuracy of these screenings has not been investigated relative to the standards of treatment by dentists in local communities. The intent of this small study was to investigate the validity of oral health screenings by dental hygienists in field conditions. Specifically, the study examined how well local hygienists could accurately classify school children as either having or not having decay, with reference to standards of treatment by dentists in the local community. This information would enable one to determine how well dental hygienists evaluate children who need dental care without over-referring.
