Methods Dental fluorosis and dental caries data were collected on 7-to 14-year-old lifelong residents (n=1493) of Newburgh Kingston, NY.
Estimated dental fluoro sis prevalence rates were 19.6% in Newburgh and 11.7% in Kingston.
The greatest disparity in caries scores was observed between poor and nonpoor children in nonfluoridated Kingston.
Conclusion The prevalence of dental fluorosis has not declined in New burgh and Kingston, whereas the preva lence of dental car has continued to decline.
