Abstract


Dental and oral health education of children through games among kindergarten teachers

Purpose

This study aims to determine the differences of knowledge about the dental and oral health of children before and after instruction with the game method called “Rangking I” among kindergarten teachers.

Methods

This research was a quasi experimental study with quantitative data analysis using a one group experimental design. A total of 29 kindergarten teachers were educated by the game method called “Rangking 1”. Changes in knowledge before and after education were measured using a pre-test and post-test.

Results

The Wilcoxon test showed that education with the “Rangking 1” game method and lectures can be effective in improving the knowledge of kindergarten teachers related to oral and dental health.

Conclusion

The game method “Rangking 1” can increase the knowledge of dental and mouth health in kindergarten teachers significantly. Schools need to consider implementing learning methods through games for kindergarten children.
