The Danish Health Authority's Central Odontology Register (SCOR) holds reports on dental care issues in children and adolescents in Denmark. SCORs purpose is to support organisational and quality development in municipal dental care services.
SCOR was set up in 1972 after an act on dental care for children took effect. All children and adolescents under the age of 18 listed in municipal social security registers are covered by free preventive and dental treatment.
Dental care is registered in SCOR. This has enabled the Danish Health Authority for more than 25 years to monitor the status and development of dental health in Danish children and adolescents as an integrated part of monitoring the children and adolescent dental care schemes.
Originally, reports were filed for all children but in 1993, this was limited to only cover 5, 7, 12 and 15 year-olds. Municipalities accordingly submit annual dental care reports to the Danish Health Authority for children reaching the age of 5, 7, 12 and 15 in the calendar year.
