Protection and Development of Dental Health in Primary School

As is known, studies around the world in the field of protection and development of health are becoming increasingly widespread. It is known that the prevalence and severity of dental caries and gingival diseases are high in terms of dental health in our contry. In this regard, especially the statements on how to increase the proportion of healthy individuals in the Ottawa Declaration have been influential in the planning of the project by TDB. Five activity areas were identified in the Declaration, for the purpose of protection and development of health. One of these areas is to ensure that individuals protect their own health. The fact that individuals have knowledge of health can not help them to protect to their own health. However, this information gains meaning by creating behavioral change. Particular in adults, the difficulty in achieving behavioral change brings child  age groups to the foreground.
The aim of our project is to bring primary school students to the point of protecting oral health by taking protective measures related to oral health. In the project, fluoridated gel application was performed by giving health education about oral health. Questionnaires and ICDAS index were used in the evaluation.
