Resumen

ARAUJO, Paula Caetano et al. Comparative Evaluation of Oral Health Knowledge Among Pedagogical Teams Receiving and not Receiving Health Promotion. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.2, pp.198-206. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2017000200013.

This study's goal was to comparatively evaluate the differences between the oral health knowledge of two teaching staff groups: those that were part of the oral health promotion programs and those that were not. Seventy six (76) teachers at ten nursery schools participated in this transversal study. The teaching staff of the intervention group were part of the activities of the "Oral Health Promotion Program in state-funded nursery schools of Araçatuba, São Paulo State" of the Araçatuba Dental School (Faculdade de Odontologia de Araçatuba - FOA/UNESP) (n=38), however, the teachers from the control group were not part of the activities (n=37). The data were collected through questionnaire with the goal of identifying the educator (sex; function at the school; age; years of schooling), and to evaluate the educator's knowledge regarding oral health (dental plaque, dental caries, toothbrush, storage of toothbrushes, tooth paste, pacifier, oral hygiene habits). The independent variables were compared between the groups through statistical tests. 76.6 % of the sample was of teachers of the nursery schools and only one participant was male. The average age between both groups was 41 and the average education level was of graduation (88.1 %). The research identified a very similar behavior in the questionnaire answers from both groups, and the knowledge identified on the evaluation was close to common sense. This study concluded that there were not significant differences on the oral health knowledge between the evaluated groups.
