The Olympic Games are the focus of attention for millions of people in the world and provide the pinnacle of sporting excellence. The health and welfare of the participating sportsmen and women is paramount for successful competition and this must include oral health. The purpose of this paper is to describe a study undertaken at the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992 into the attendance patterns and oral health of patients visiting the dental clinic provided in the Olympic Village. Recommendations are made for the conduct of future dental care facilities at Olympic Games and the collection of data.
