    Abstract

    It is not generally possible to assess diagnostic accuracy in dental surveys as no histological 'gold standards' are available, therefore examiner agreement tends to be used as a proxy for accuracy. The aim of this study was to investigate, using extracted teeth in arch models, the in vitro validity of a diagnostic system to assess caries at the D1 (enamel and dentine) and D3 (dentine) diagnostic thresholds, for epidemiological purposes.
