ALVAREZ MONTERO, Carmen Julia; NAVAS PEROZO, Rita  y  ROJAS DE MORALES, Thaís. Educational-recreational-associative element of promotion strategies for oral health in children of preschool education. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2006, vol.43, n.2. ISSN 0034-7507.

This paper analyzed the integration of the educational-recreational-associative element into the oral health-promoting strategies implemented in the preschool education center named “Fuerzas Armadas de Cooperación”, Maracaibo, Venezuela. The condition of oral health-disease was determined in a sample of 32 children by evaluating initial and manifest caries along with plaque and gingival indexes. The oral health conceptions of the parents were learned, afterwards, some activities were designed and carried out to come to a re-definition of concepts and to achieve adoption of observable behaviours in parents and their children alike by holding games and usisng visual resources and guided practices in oral hygiene. It was concluded that the oral health condition of children improved significantly after the required learning, which directly related with the implemented actions and the commitment by parents and professors. This methodology is recommended to plan new teaching/learning strategies.

Palabras clave : educational/recreational/associative component; oral health; educational strategies; preschool children.
