Abstract
In this paper, the theory and practice to develop the individual oral health index for dental patient was introduced, in consideration of the concept for evidence based and simple apply for the clinical use, in order to use it for the prevention based continuous and incremental oral health care system for dental patient. Individual oral health index as a representative level of oral health for each dental patient has been developed with the consideration of the 5 factors which can be influence the oral health in general as, the numbers and the health state of the residual natural teeth, caries state in the oral cavity, periodontal state, the other tissue health state and the oral health care habits or ability and the systemic conditions for individuals. The different weight for each factor was suggested through the regression model by some clinical tests. It would be important that this system as prevention based continuous and incremental dental care by use of computer system will be a motivation to spread the preventive cares in Korea gradually, through the encourage of the preventive cares effectively.
