The purpose of this study was analyzing the first permanent molars condition that was how catch on general oral health of the children in primary school, to make use of the basic data on dental health policy project for the school oral health. The sampling was done at the primary school in Suncheon. It made a survey on the first permanent molars of 823 person who had attended in March, 2009. By using the WHO standards and Clune's dental health capacity, the conditions of first permanent molars calculated. DMFT index and it's condition of first molars statistically are analyzed by Pearson's correlation. 1. The dental health capacity of the first permanent molars was 92.2%. 2. The DMFS index of first permanent molars was 3.97. 3. The dental health capacity of first permanent molars have related with DMFT index(r= -0.895). 4. DMFS index of the first molars have positive relation with DMFT index(r= 0.902). In this repory, I would like to suggest that the evaluation of dental health project for the school aged children should be considered including the healthy status of the first molars.
