The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence rate of the nursing caries in preschool children by retrospective epidemiological survey. 500 preschool children in Iksan city were examined for their dental caries experience (dt, mt, ft). Subjects were divided stepwise by the pattern of caries experience: Group 1-no caries, Group 2-no caries in the upper arch, Group 3-no caries among the upper incisors, Group 4-dmft in the lower arch ≥ mft in the upper arch, Group 5-dmft among the upper molars > dmft among the upper incisors, Group 6-dmft among the upper molars < dmft among the upper incisors+caries among the lower incisors, and Group 7-the rest. Groups 6 was regarded as the group which had experienced rampant caries, and the Group 7 was regarded as the group which had the typical pattern of nursing caries. The prevalence rate of nursing caries (Group 7) was 16.0%.
