The aim of this study was to assess the attitude and awareness of children towards oral health and dental care as well as to evaluate the factors that determine these variables.


To help spread awareness of oral hygiene among children


The foundation for healthy permanent teeth in children and teenagers is laid during the first years of life. Poor diet, poor habits of food intake and inadequate tooth brushing habits during the first 2 years of life have been shown in several studies to be related to tooth decay in children. The development of caries in primary teeth further increases the risk of developing caries in permanent teeth. Therefore it is essential to establish a proper oral hygiene routine early in life to help ensure the development of strong and healthy teeth.


To help children to lead a better life and healthy oral hygiene
