  • Description:
    The 2015-16 Oral Health Component of NHANES is sponsored by the following organizations:

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)/National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP)/Division of Oral Health (DOH);

    The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR); and

    The CDC/National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).

    The purpose of this component is to assess the prevalence of oral conditions and diseases, such as tooth retention, dental caries, sealants, and fluorosis. A concurrent set of questions administered during the household interview assesses issues related to dental utilization, oral hygiene practices, and oral health quality of life.

    Over the past five decades, oral and dental health characteristics collected in national surveys supported by the Federal Government have been critical for monitoring health status, risk factors for disease, access to preventive and treatment services, and other health characteristics among the general population and special subpopulations. These studies include the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) and the National Health Interview Surveys (NHIS), as well as special surveys such as the Hispanic Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and the children’s and adult surveys conducted by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
