Aim and objective: To assess the association, if any, between oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) measured using child oral impact on daily performances (C-OIDP) index and dental caries and gingival bleeding status among 12-year-old school children of Bhubaneswar city. Materials and methods: A cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted, and the data were collected using child oral impacts on daily performances index, a closed-ended questionnaire among the 12-year-old school children of Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India, to find out the association between dental caries prevalence among gingival bleeding status. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, and Chi-squared tests were used to determine the significant differences in the variable of interest. Results: The study population consists of 1,034 students, out of which 457 (44.2%) are males and 577 (55.8%) are females. A total of 463 (44.8%) children belonged to private schools, and 571 (55.2%) children belonged to government schools. The prevalence of dental caries among males was found to be 49.8% among males and 49.5% among females. A total of 58.8% of the school children presented the impact of oral problems in at least one of the eight daily performances evaluated by C-OIDP. Conclusion: According to the current study, eating was the most negatively impacted of the eight daily performances; it was also evident that dental caries, gingival bleeding, and OHRQoL were associated.
