An analysis of the oral health situation according to living conditions was made in "Camilo Cienfuegos" health area located in Habana del Este municipality from September 2000 to July 2001. The concept of living conditions was made operative. For the classification of conditioning factors according to the living conditions, the integrated development index was used to make a more comprehensive interpretation of the community where the individual and his family live and develop since the living conditions and the related oral health are analyzed. On the other hand, this type of analysis may also be used by both family physicians and the staffs in charge of dental management, who require following this kind of approach. Finally, this type of analysis may be applied to family, physician's office, health area, municipality or any other type of organization.
