ORAL HYGIENE PRACTICES AMONG DENTAL AND MEDICAL STUDENTS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NAIROBI

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Dental caries and periodontal diseases are influenced by the person's way of life. Oral health knowledge and practice may affect their prevalence or slow down the rate at which they progress. In recent years, a wide variety of projects have been undertaken to improve public awareness and knowledge of oral health in general, and periodontal health in particular. This study is to be carried out among the dental and medical students at the University of Nairobi. A cross-section of the students would be taken from the student population to participate in this study. Stratified random sampling would be used to identify the participants in this study and the strata would be based on the course of study. Questionnaires would be administered to the participants by the researcher at the halls of residence. The results of this study would act as a baseline study for future studies on the same subject.
An educated group of the population should have better oral health knowledge and behaviour. Dental and medical students should therefore have a very low prevalence of dental pathology, which should further be lowest among dental students and those in the same line of profession.
