Abstract : The purpose of this report is to analyze the distribution of personnel of the US Air Force relative to the Department of Defense (DoD) Dental Classification system. Data on the oral health status, dental treatment needs, dental utilization, and satisfaction with military dental care of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines were collected, combined, analyzed, and reported in two volumes titled '1994 Tri-Service Comprehensive Oral Health Survey' (York A.K., Poindexter F.R., and Chisick M.C.). This report limits the study population to Air Force personnel only, and includes data from both enlisted recruits and non-recruit active duty when appropriate. The definitions and criteria for DoD Dental Classification are contained in the Appendix
