The information was obtained by the method of observation, measurements, dental clinical examination and personal interviews. 13.6 % had very severe or disabling malocclusions and 69.3 % presented crowding. The dental aesthetics index showed 96 % of sensitivity in relation to the need of priority treatment. It was concluded that the index is effective to identify the priority treatment needs. It also proved to be suitable on being compared with the specialist's criterion.
