Analysis on Results of Oral Health Education among Educators and Learners


A school oral health program consisted of oral health education, oral health diagnosis, grouped tooth brushing, fluoride mouth rinsing, and incremental dental care, as well as that which was necessary for the oral health of other students. The purpose of this study is to increase satisfaction through field training among educators in performing the roles of a pre-educator and a dental hygienist by experiencing oral health education and on-site, and to increase the interest in oral health education. All data were analyzed by the statistics software package IBM SPSS 21. The significance level of all tests was 0.05, which was used to judge statistical significance. For reliability analysis tools, Cronbach alpha was used. The levels of the satisfaction of the respondents were analyzed by a one-sample-mean-analysis and ANOVA. This study also intends to use the survey results as a basis for developing oral health education programs and continuing an oral health care system policy by mandating the installment of oral health units within schools.
