Title: A private clinic – based dental service programme for kindergarten children in Hong Kong

Abstract: The aim of this study was to find out the effects of providing a private practice based dental service programme to the kindergarten children in Hong Kong. In the clinical trial, a total of 245 children attending Grade 1 in nine kindergartens participated. Baseline information of the children was collected and they were randomly allocated into the test or control group. Children in the test group were offered free dental services at regular intervals based on their caries risk in 3 private dental clinics. Evaluation took place after 24 months through conducting clinical examinations and a parental questionnaire. It was found that the service was effective in preventing new dental caries and in reducing the amount of untreated caries. However, it had little effective in improving the oral health related behaviours and oral hygiene status of the children. Consumer satisfaction by the parents and children was very high.
