A quasi experimental design, as well as a pre testpost test non equivalent control group approach, was carried out in this study. The samples were 80 samples. 40 out of them were given oral health education using local language booklet. While the rest were not given any treatment. The parametric statistics used were paired and unpaired t test. The data then analyzed by using univariate and bivariate analysis.
The study revealed that there were differences of parental knowledge in booklet group (p value=0,000) and an increase of students’ OHI-S (p value=0,000) before and after the treatment. Also, there were differences of parental knowledge (p value=0,006) and students’ OHI-S (p value=0,000) between treatment and control groups.
