"Washington"s oral health programs are making progress for kindergarten and second- and third-grade children! During the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school years, the Washington State Department of Health conducted the fifth Smile Survey. More than 13,000 children in 76 public schools and over 1,400 preschool children from 47 Head Start and ECEAP program participated in the 2015-1016 Smile Survey. Dental screenings were completed by licensed dental hygienists and one dentist.
The report assesses the oral health status and treatment needs of children throughout the state. Results are compared with the 2010 and 2005 Smile Survey results where possible. The 2016 survey results revealed that Washington's oral health policies and programs have made progress for a few indicators. However, findings also show that tooth decay is still a major concern for Washington's children."
