All patients presented with oral and facial disorders. Subjects in the age group of 10-14 years and males were found to be predominant and the greatest frequency was found among subjects from rural areas. Impacted teeth ranked first place among oral and facial disorders detected. From the patients studied 47.2 % was admitted to hospital.
