The Montana BRFSS gathers information from adults in a wide range of health-related behaviors through phone survey.  Oral health related questions are part of the base questionnaire every other year, although the Montana questionnaire has added oral health questions each year since 2010.  A data brief on utilization of dental care and tooth loss from 2011 to 2014 is available by request.  For querying BRFSS data sets please visit the Montana DPHHS Indicator-Based Information System (MT-IBIS) webpage.
