Analysis revealed that the DMFT index in 12-year-old students was 1.67, which is considered low according to WHO criteria. The teeth with most caries were the first permanent molars. Girls had higher DMFT than boys. In some areas, urban students had significantly higher DMFT whereas in other areas, rural students had significantly higher DMFT|
