LHPC was looked up via oblique light, zoom and stereomicroscope respectively. The differences between male’s and female’s oral health were statistically tested. The distribution of dental caries within male’s and female’s group shows clearly the worth oral health of girls. The differences between male and female carious teeth are statistically significant both, deciduous and permanent teeth.
