Public Health Problem Although prevention and treatment for oral disease have improved significantly over the past 50 years, thousands of people in Illinois continue to experience dental pain and dysfunction. Illinois mirrors the nation in that oral disease remains pervasive among some populations, and cavities continue to be a major problem for some children. The Project Smile statewide survey, conducted in 1994, revealed that 38% of children aged 6–8 years in the state had untreated cavities, and the figure was even higher in the Chicago area, where 54% of children had untreated decay. Only 29% of Hispanic and 40% of black children aged 8–12 years were free of obvious decay, compared with 52% of white children.
