Abstract: Socio-economic factors are important parameters for dental health status and preventive behavior. In an epidemiologic survey of +/- 8000 5- and 12-year old schoolchildren in Flanders significant differences in dental attendance, brushing habits and caries prevalence were found between 12-year old boys and girls. Ethnic differences were pronounced. Dental attendance and brushing frequency were lower in non-West-European children. These children showed a higher caries attack rate at the age of 5 but in 12-year olds the opposite was noted. Interprovincial differences should probably be attributed to differences in social levels.
