Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the association between family social risk (FSR), individual oral risk and caries and periodontal disease risk and demographic variables of adults from a Family Health Unit (FHU) in the city of Santo André, SP, Brazil. Method: The sample consisted of 253 families and 324 adults, which corresponds to 16.4% of the families registered at the Jardim Santo Alberto FHU in Santo André, SP. The data of the families were collected using the Basic Attention Information System's A Form and transferred to the instrument "Family Risk Scoring System - Santo André", being classified as low, medium, high and extra high FSR. After this classification, all members of the families were asked to attend for an oral examination by the FHU's oral health team, being classified according to the caries and periodontal disease risk criteria established by the São Paulo State Health Secretary. Data were subjected to descriptive analysis, Chi-square or Fisher's exact test, and multiple logistic regressions. Results: The FSR was only associated with the microarea, and most individuals from the microarea 1 belonged to the high FSR classification. No significant association was found between caries risk and individual oral risk and the demographic variables. Women had 2.290 more chances than men of presenting low risk of periodontal disease. Conclusion: The instrument and risk criteria used in this program should be restructured and reevaluated in other populations in order to achieve a more effective contribution for planning the work of FHU's oral health teams.
