Background/Objectives: We operated a three-step promotion program in order to improve children’s oral health. Based on the program, we tried to demonstrate the efficacy by time and the necessity of education for daycare teachers and protectors as they would be in charge for children’s oral health status. Methods/Statistical analysis: A total 189 subjects who are teacher of kindergarten or protector of preschooler at J city, Chungcheongbuk-do province were enrolled, and from March 2013 they conducted a survey for a month. Oral health promotion program was operated for total 193 preschool children at age 6 or 7. It included theoretical and practice education for appropriate behaviors for oral health. Findings: Regarding oral health promotion program, each PHP index (Patient oral Hygiene Performance) by time presented improved plaque score as education had been repeated (p<0.001). The survey for improvement of children’s tooth brushing practices demonstrated the rate of children with oral health instruction experience as 21%, and with fluoride-containing dentifrice usage as 43%. Only 42% of subjects were aware of appropriate amount of dentifrice for children (pea-size). Improvements/Applications: For supporting qualified oral health behaviors for children, it is necessary to develop modules based on health promotion model which could lead children’s attitude and performance for oral health.
