The scope of the study is to evaluate the extent of odonthal affection in a group of 12 year-old children from Slatina, an industrial town situated in the south part of Romania.
Materials and method. A clinical transversal study was performed, in the year 2011, on 11-12 year-old children (average age =12�0.06 years). The children were examined clinically, and their odonthal status was registered. The index of caries prevalence (Ip), the dmft/s, DMFT/S indices and their components, SiC30 and SiC10,
were calculated for the whole group, as well as separately, on sexes. The results were statistically processed with program SPSS, version 12.0.
Results. 1. For primary dentition: Ip=59.8%, dmft=1.91 0.4; SiC30=3.56 0.5; SiC10=8.5 1.1; dmfs=4.47 1. 2. For permanent dentition: Ip=77%; DMFT= 2.8 0.4; SiC30=5.7 0.2; SiC10=8.6 2.4; DMFS=4.12 0.2.
Conclusions. 10% of the children, respectively 30% of them, evidence increased carious activity, which requires the implementation of special education programs for the reconstruction of a modern network of school medical consultation rooms.
