dc.description.abstract The aim of this study was to investigate if school based drama- and activity intervention about oral health could affect children’s knowledge of the caries disease, use of fluoride and affect their oral hygiene. The study included 12 primary school classes in the south part of Sweden. Two interventions, drama- and activity lesson, were made with five months apart in the classroom in eight classes. The other four classes served as reference group. The lesson started with a conversation with the children about oral health. During the drama intervention a “cool guy” dressed in a face mask entered the classroom with toothache and asked for help to get better oral health behaviour. At the activity intervention, five oral health related stations with follow up questions were performed by the children in groups of 4-5 students. Yearly clinical examinations with plaque control and a questionnaire were made in January 2010, before the first intervention and in January 2011, after the second intervention. A total of 192 students participated, 160 at both clinical examinations. The same dental hygienist performed the intervention and made the clinical examinations. The results show that the intervention group significantly improved their knowledge of the effect of fluoride between 2010 and 2011 (p=0,000) which could not be seen in the reference group (p=0,625). After one year the plaque scores were significant lower in the intervention group compared to the reference group, 54 % against 69 % (p=0,034), which could not be seen at baseline (p=0,149). There were differences in both the intervention- and the reference groups between 2010 and 2011 regarding the amount that answered that they use a fluoride toothpaste (p=0,000), but no significant difference between groups were shown. The study indicates that the drama- and activity intervention improved the children’s knowledge about the effect of fluoride, had a positive effect on their dental hygiene and may have increased their awareness of using fluoride toothpaste. en_US
