Ontario Association of Public Health Dentistry (OAPHD)

The OAPHD produced a report in August 2008 entitled "A 2007 OAPHD Survey of Ontario Health Units for Data From 2006". The report was written to compile data from the Dental Indices Survey (DIS) for all Ontario health units because the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care stopped disseminating provincial DIS data in 1993.

All 36 Ontario health units were asked to provide their DIS data for compilation. Between 28 and 30 health units provided data for most oral health indicators.

The report also compiles information on the proportion of the population within each health unit with community water fluoridation.
