Abstract:   (1761 Views)


Education on preventing oral diseases is one of the influential measures in improvement of oral health in the community. To this end, raising the school children's dental knowledge is considered to be a cost-effective plan for promoting oral health. The aim of this study was to evaluate the level of dental knowledge among the high school boys in Mashhad City.

Material and Methods:

This descriptive-analytical and cross-sectional study was conducted on 782 high school boys. The participants' knowledge about oral health was examined through a questionnaire. The results were statistically analyzed, using Mann Whitney, Chi-Square and Krusacal Wallis tests.


The results of this study revealed that only 13.6% of the study group had a good amount of dental knowledge. School children's dental knowledge generally varied across independent factors like the school situation, school district, grade, and the level of parents' education.


The results of this study indicated that the level of knowledge on oral health among school children in Mashhad is still poor and needs to be improved. Long-term, school-based educational programs on oral health are highly recommended.

Keywords: School Children, Dental Knowledge, Oral Health
