|Abstract: ||It is an indisputable fact that the primary school is the foundation stage on which the rest of our education tiers are built. Observation seems to attest to the fact that scientific facts are acquired at this stage which are stored by the children for reflective thinking in later stages of life which in one way or the other affect the health practices of the individual. In Nigeria, very little attention seems to be paid to oral health by various sectors of the economy despite the fact that problems associated with oral health are generating increasing concern. As a part of the revised World Health Organization (WHO) strategy therefore, we have decided to have this Workshop paper on practical Teaching of Oral Health in the primary school. The concern of this aspect of the workshop therefore, is as much as possible to educate, and if possible, to produce healthy primary school communities, especially in oral health. Specifically, this workshop covered the following:
Determinants of oral health and diseases.
Practical session on oral health.
Principles of teaching oral health.|
