Abstract
A number of reports during recent years have suggested that dental caries is decreasing in several populations. In order to substantiate this, recordings of dental caries collected over a 10-year period were analyzed. All children received systematic preventive and restorative care from kindergarten to 9th or 10th grade (age approximately 16 years). Each cohort consisted of 50-60 children, and data on dental caries were available on all children in 1st through 7th grade over a 9-year period. Mean DMFS had decreased with 72% for 1st graders, 65% for 4th graders and 69% for 7th graders. Analyses of the distribution of children according to DMFS showed that in spite of the general decrease in mean DMFS, some children still showed high DMFS-values. The variability according to DMFS was increased during the same period as indicated by the coefficient of variation. Furthermore, children with a given, high DMFS account for a decreasing fraction of all DMF-surfaces in the population as the mean DMFS decreases. It is suggested that the effect on mean DMFS for the entire group of children of a hypothetical, individualized preventive program for high-risk individuals would be limited. In the light of these findings the appropriateness of special preventive programs for "high-risk" individuals is questioned.

Abstract
Plans to expand public child dental services to include preschoolchildren and the recently established training of dental hygienists in Denmark form the background for the present study. The study was performed in a rural municipality located 35 km north of Aarhus. Public child dental services for schoolchildren (6-16 years of age) had been established for several years and were being planned to include preschoolchildren. In cooperation with the personnel in the Child Dental Service a full-time employed dental hygienist developed a communication network with different categories of key-persons (health nurses, private daycare mothers and nursery school teachers). Close records and diaries were kept during the entire 3-year study period. The paper summarises the experience gained from co-operation with a large number of key-persons and illustrates some of the conditions necessary for a successful process. The effect of the program on dental caries is discussed.

Abstract
The effect of a dental public health program comprising schoolchildren under the Danish Act on Child Dental Health has been evaluated after 5 years of operation. The program comprised complete restorative care for all children from kindergarten through the 9th grade (16 years of age), but only children attending kindergarten through third grade (10 years) are included in the present study. Each grade comprised approximately 50 children. A number of preventive procedures such as topical fluoride application, oral hygiene instruction and various other educational procedures have been used. The treatment services resulted in almost complete elimination of the "D" component and the "M" component in the DMFS index. The preventive services resulted in marked reductions in the total DMFS index, and almost complete elimination of new carious lesions after enrollment in the program. The non-experimental nature of the study makes it possible to determine the effect of each one of the preventive procedures used in the program.
