The South Australian Dental Longitudinal Study (NHMRC)

The South Australian Dental Longitudinal Study (SADLS) has been the first comprehensive dental longitudinal study of older adults to be conducted in Australia. Participants were aged 60+ years at the 1991 baseline data collection, and were a random sample of community-dwelling older adults in urban Adelaide and rural Mount Gambier. The 11-year follow-up data collection builds upon the previous study findings to provide important and new information about the onset and progression of oral diseases in older Australians.
