A questionnaire survey was conducted in 1995 on a group of students and their teachers (n = 80) from 3 Independent Schools in Singapore, to assess their orthodontic need, demand, attitude and awareness. Motivational factors and barriers to treatment were also analysed. 36% had orthodontic experience, another 49% perceived need but did not elect to have treatment. Parents and dentists remain the main motivational force behind orthodontic demand. The survey demonstrated high orthodontic utilisation in this group of subjects.
