OBJECTIVES To determine oral health literacy (REALD-30) and oral health literacy-related outcome associations, and to calculate if oral health literacy-related outcomes are risk indicators for poor self-reported oral health among rural-dwelling Indigenous Australians. METHODS 468 participants (aged 17-72 years, 63% female) completed a self-report(More)

OBJECTIVES To examine the clinical validity and reliability of dental self-report items used in a National Child Nutrition Survey. METHODS The study involved completion of dental self-report questionnaires by 6-9-year-old children who attended one of the three schools with ethnic distributions, similar to schools in the national survey, and their(More)
The recently discovered longitudinal displacement of the common carotid arterial wall (i.e., the motion along the same plane as the blood flow), may be associated with incident cardiovascular events and represents a novel and relevant clinical information. At present, there have only been a few studies that have been conducted to investigate this(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare clinical oral health outcomes between a birth cohort of young Australian Aboriginal adults and age-matched, national-level counterparts. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS Comparison of outcomes between the dental component of Wave-3 of the Aboriginal Birth Cohort (ABC) study--a cross-sectional study conducted between January 2006 and(More)
OBJECTIVES To explore the prevalence and severity of Indigenous and non-Indigenous child dental disease in relation to age, sex, residential location and socio-economic status in three Australian states and territories. DESIGN Children aged 4-14 years who were enrolled in a school dental or screening service in New South Wales, South Australia and the(More)
BACKGROUND Individual-level factors influence DMFT, but little is known about the influence of community environment. This study examined associations between community-level influences and DMFT among a birth cohort of Indigenous Australians aged 16-20 years.

OBJECTIVES To determine predictors of untreated dental decay among 15-34-year-olds in Australia. METHODS Data were from Australia's National Survey of Adult Oral Health, a representative survey that utilized a three-stage, stratified clustered sampling design. Models representing demographic, socioeconomic, dental service utilization and oral health(More)
BACKGROUND There is limited information on the impact of poor oral health on Indigenous Australian quality of life. This study aimed to determine the prevalence, extent and severity of, and to calculate risk indicators for, poor oral health-related quality of life among a convenience sample of rural-dwelling Indigenous Australians. METHODS Participants (n(More)
