National Data

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintains Oral Health Data, which includes data from the National Oral Health Surveillance System (NOHSS).  The NOHSS is a joint effort between CDC's Division of Oral Health and the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors.  The NOHSS monitors the amount of oral disease, use of oral health care services, and the status of community water fluoridation on both a national and state level.

Other national data include:

The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research reports oral health data by topic and population.

The Data Resource Center for Child and Adolescent Health provides national, state, and regional data findings.  Two recent surveys, in particular, offer information about the oral health of children in the United States: the 2011 National Survey of Children's Health and the 2009-10 National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs.
