  • In 2012, 68% of adults had visited a dentist in the last year.  Among adults, 15% had lost 6 or  more teeth due to decay.  Tooth loss increased as age increased, and decreased as education level and income increased.  Visiting the dentist in the last year increased as education level and income increased.  (2015 Spokane Counts, Spokane Regional Health District)

  • More than half of children (57%) in Spokane County in 2010 experienced dental decay by third grade.  Decay experience was more likely among lower income, non-white or Hispanic children.   (2015 Spokane Counts, Spokane Regional Health District)
