Probability of Bacterial Infection per Patient

by Jon-Christopher Hector


Submitted : Fall 2014

As patients enter a dental office for their biannual checkups or to figure out the reason behind an ache they feel in their mouths. Dentists have discovered that a number of these patients have obtained a bacterial infection that has not been treated over time and most times the circumstance is worse than expected. The problem is to find the probability of Streptococcus sanguinis, Streptococcus mutans and a combination of the bacteria that occurred during the visit of the last 50 patients.
