Abstract : A review of before/after changes in dental plaque and calculus deposits and the distribution and severity of periodontal diseases in subjects at a naval training center was conducted, and related to the preventive dentistry program. The subjects were naval recruits who continued training at the center for six months. They received significant short-term reductions of plaque and at the end of their training had an overall slight improvement in periodontal health as a result of the program. (Author)
