Abstract : The report summarizes a 10-year crossectional and longitudinal survey of the dental health of naval recruits. Specific attention is directed to the epidemiologic, microbiologic, biochemic, nutritional, genetic and familial characteristics of the absolutely caries-free recruit. Data are also presented on the dental pathological changes which were observed in the skeletal material of ancient Hawaiians from Mokapu, Oaku. (Author)
