  • ORAL HEALTH CARE PRACTICES OF PARENTS IN BARANGAY QUIRINO 2A PROJECT 2, QUEZON CITY: A BASIS FOR PROPOSED ORAL HEALTH CARE PROGRAM KJR. Andal; BD. Dela Cruz; MB. Fernandez; KAE. Fullante; CRS. Lugares; MMG. Pangan; WC. Tesoro; KAN. Tonilon; MST. Virola School of Dentistry, Cento Escolar University, 2014 Manila, Philippines ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION Table 12 According to Civil Status The respondents have an overall result of very good practice for tooth brushing. Separated parents have the highest result because they have more time for themselves while married parents have the lowest results because they have divided attention. Parents are the main decision makers with regards to matters associated with their child’s health. They also function as role models for their children; therefore, their dental awareness and practices are very important. Parent’s level of awareness on oral health can either improve or risk their children’s dental health status. It is important to consider the parents as key contributors to achieving good oral health status not only of their family, but the whole community. Also, the parents are expected to pass on what they know to their child so that this future generation may bring the practices to their adulthood. Moreover, considering these parents know the basic knowledge in proper dental health care, it should be assured that they are sincerely practicing them. The respondents have an overall result of fair practice for flossing and mouth washing and do not show significant difference in the results. Married parents have the highest result because they set a good example to their children. OBJECTIVE Meanwhile, widowed parents have the lowest results because they are not that conscious about their oral hygiene since they have no more intimate interaction with a significant other. This study aims to determine the oral health care practices of the parents with regards to the different category given in order to construct an oral health care program that could help them achieve better oral health status. METHODOLOGY The descriptive and survey methods of research will be used in this study. It is descriptive because its main concern is to get the holistic view of the characteristics of the respondents. Table 13 According to Employment Status There is a significant difference between employed and unemployed respondents with regards to tooth brushing with regards to flossing and mouth rinsing; there is no significant difference between the employed and unemployed respondents. Employed respondents have better results than unemployed ones because they often interact with people that make them more conscious in their oral hygiene. RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS Comparison of the Respondents about the Oral Health Care Practices Table 10 According to Age Table 14 According to Educational Attainment Parents who are college graduates have higher results than elementary and high school graduates because they are more aware of proper oral health care practices. The respondents from age group of 20 and below have the lowest result compared to the rest with regards to brushing their teeth, because they are not yet aware about the importance of good oral hygiene. The respondents of age group 51 and above have a fair result but is nigh unto becoming average. For in their age, they tend to not to follow proper oral health problem because most of them are already denture wearers and some only have few teeth left. Table 11 According to Gender There is a significant difference between male and female respondents with regards to tooth brushing because female respondents have better results than male respondents. With regards to flossing and mouth rinsing, there is no significant difference between two genders. CONCLUSIONS There is no significant difference in the results obtained in terms of gender, civil status, occupational status and educational attainment when it comes to tooth brushing, flossing and mouth rinsing but there is a significant difference when it comes to age in terms of tooth brushing, flossing and mouth rinsing. RECOMMENDATIONS With the findings and conclusions in this study, the researchers recommend: 1. Government authorities should conduct oral health care programs for parents residing at Barangay Quirino 2A Project 2, Quezon City 2. Parents should give importance to their oral health by brushing, flossing and rinsing their teeth. 3. Regular dental check-up for the residents of Barangay Quirino 2A at least twice a year. 4.
