Abstract:

Dental surveys to collect data on the developing dentition of school aged children are routinely performed by Health Authorities in the UK. The information collected varies greatly from survey to survey, so that each survey file has a unique structure and consists of unique data elements. The data itself is currently stored in such a way that analysis of data between different survey sets is not possible. This paper investigates a method of modelling a dynamic data store capable of accepting differing historical survey data sets, and studies the functionality required to support the dynamic data store design.
