Periodontal disease is a common inflammatory condition which affects the supporting and surrounding soft tissues of the tooth; also the jawbone itself when in its most advanced stages, in its early stage called Gingivitis and later stage called Periodontitis. This paper developed an online population based periodontal disease surveillance system that allows for easy access to statistics of periodontal occurrence on real-time basis. The system was implemented using HTML, PHP and CSS while the database was implemented using MYSQL. The simple interface design proved to be user-friendly for all users that handled the system. The system will also go a long in solving the problem of poor health care system for periodontal patients as access to information and statistics of periodontal occurrence is made real-time.
