Aim: Describe the oral health status of children with inherited bleeding disorders who attended the Pereira Rossell Hospital in Montevideo Uruguay for dental care, between February 2008 and December 2009, and compare it with children without bleeding disorders. Methods: A retrospective case-control study was carried out. The study group consisted of 39 patients (age: 8.62 ± 4.20 years), while the control group had 78 patients (age 6.5 ± 2.88). Descriptive analysis was done to the data. Results: The study group had a dmf-s index 2.85 ± 2.41 and a DMF-s 1.96 ± 2.59, being slightly higher than in the control group. The bleeding disorder classification was: Hemophilia A, 17 patients; Hemophilia B, 7 patients; factor XII deficit, 1 patient; and Von Willebrand disease, 14 patients. Commitment to the treatment was determined as good in 15 patients and bad in 24 patients. Conclusion: This is the first oral health report on children with bleeding disorders from this program in Uruguay. It is necessary to follow up the patients and increase the program coverage in order to maintain the oral health of this kind of patients.
