A wide literature review on the oral and dental health promotion in primary school students which comprised elements related to the referencial field of Odonto-Pediatrics, a responsibility of the stomatology staff that assists boys and girls, the prevention of oral and dental conditions, the education for health and others was carried out. It was concluded that the educational intervention is an effective and appropriate method to acquire and increase knowledge on oral health, as it makes possible that the students from one or another sex, besides transmitting it to members of their families and other schoolmates, become true oral health promoters in their community environment.
