The subjects of this research were children from 1 to 15 years of age. We distributed the Cariostat^<【○!R】>, Mucount^<【○!R】>, dental examination forms and questionnaires among the department of pediatric dentistry of the 29 dental colleges in Japan in order to master the state of the prevention and progress control of caries, and the parents education from June to October in 1999. We researched the data of dental examination, the caries activity test and the questionnaire survey. Then we conducted the statistic processing on the data and got results as follows.
1. At each college, concerning parent education private guidance was more important than group guidance, the instructions were mainly on oral cleaning and eating between mails. Moreover, the application of the fluoride was carried out actively. The instructions of oral health mainly focused on eating between mails, brushing and tooth brushing using floss.
2. Concerning the handing of uncooperative children, it was found that each college adopted some measures for them and the measures focused on caries prevention.
3. There were a significantly relationship individually regarding Mucount^<【○!R】>, CSI and Cariostat^<【○!R】>, showing that Cariostat^<【○!R】> and Mocount^<【○!R】> can be used for measuring the actual state of the caries activity in the mouth.
4. It was found that the caries risk was affected by the state of eating between mails and the parent's attitude on caries.
5. It was found that there were growing consciousness and knowledge of caries prevention and the importance of periodic examinations among parents and children, but it was insufficient yet.
6. It was noticed that we should pay more attentions on children's caries prevention.
