A survey was carried out of 12-year old primary school children in the suburban and rural communities of Ile-Ife and Imesi-Ile respectively to determine their dietary practive and also assess their dental status.

These children were examined for dental carries, periodontal diseases, oral hygiene status, dentofacial anomalies and traumatic dental injuries.
There was a significant difference in the social background of the children in the communities (P<0.05).
