The general health of an individual child has been correlated with the academic achievements. There is limited data on the relationship of oral health and academic performance. The present study evaluated 308 children in the age group of 3-7 years of similar socioeconomic status for dental caries, school attendance, physical activity scores and school performance. Results showed a negative correlation of dental caries with attendance, physical activity and school performance; and positive correlation between school performance and attendance. School attendance, physical activity and school performance are minor markers of oral health status.
