Strengths &
Limitations
1. The data for 5 year olds relate to deciduous (milk) teeth.
2. The data relate to children attending state schools in an area (i.e. not private schools). National minimum standards are set for the random sampling of children to
obtain a sample representative of the age-group in the area.
3. The national and sub-national figures for the most recent surveys are weighted by deprivation quintile and, where necessary, sample size.
4. Due to changes in the method of obtaining consent the survey of 5 year olds conducted in 2007/08, it is not possible to make direct comparisons with the series of
surveys prior to 2007/08. Data are shown for information but in a slightly different colour to highlight this.
6. Previous surveys were conducted every 4 years; future surveys will be collected bi-annually, therefore next collection period is 2016/17.
7. Figures are based on a survey sample and caution is needed when generalising to the whole population.

1. It is difficult to see a true trend in the data although at a national level it appears to be levelling off. At a local level the sample size is fairly small which means there are
wide confidence intervals making any differences insignificant within the County.
Time Trend
Benchmarking
Outside
1. Oxfordshire rates are similar to national and regional levels.
Oxfordshire
Benchmarking
1. in West Oxfordshire the mean number appears to be decreasing. However in South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse the mean number appears to be increasing.
within
There are not enough data points to ascertain if these are on-going trends and confidence limits are wide adding to the fluctuation..
Oxfordshire
Expert interpretation
and conclusions with
additional information
1. This indicator sheds more light on the oral health of children with the worst oral health by excluding those with perfect teeth from the analysis.
2. Figures show that Oxfordshire has generally similar levels of tooth decay in children who have some decayed, missing or filled teeth at the age of 5 than the national
average.
3. At district level, there is a fairly wide range of levels of tooth decay in children who show signs of some decay.
4. Oral health promotion work is being delivered in:
- Pre-school settings: healthy eating policy, preventative dental care, staff and health visitors encouraging use of mouth wash and toothpaste.
- Supervised tooth brushing pilot in targeted primary schools throughout the county.
5. The RAG rating is amber.
