Methodology Notes: 

    The Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors (ASTDD) collects information through a questionnaire that is distributed to all State Dental Directors and the DC. Each Director completes the questionnaire annually and a summary of the report is placed on the ASTDD website (www.astdd.org). The survey contains a number of questions that focus on the state dental program components and the data collection efforts and monitoring of oral health surveillance measures.

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020: 
This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 21-15 in that objective 21-15 tracked States that recorded and referred children with cleft lips and palates. For Healthy People 2020, objective 21-15 was split into two objectives: OH-15.1, which tracks States that have a system for recording children with cleft lips and palates, and OH-15.2, which tracks States that have a system for referring children with cleft lips and palates.
