In order to construct a dental health education program for the Division of Northern Samar, it is important to understand the opinions of school-age students on oral health, which were presented in this study. The profile of the school-age students and the condition, and practices, of their oral hygiene were also described using a descriptive research design that included both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Students in grades one through six from the four districts Catarman served as respondents totaled 377. Significantly, it was discovered that the typical meals served to the student responders included rich fish, rich chicken, rich rice, and rich vegetables. Most of the parents of the student responders are low-income, college-educated individuals who believe that it is important for kids to brush their teeth after every meal. The majority of respondents had dental decay, had multiple tooth decay, indicated that cleaning their teeth was not the primary cause of their tooth decay, experienced tooth loss, had no filled teeth, and believed that the best approach to remove plaque was by brushing their teeth. Additionally, the majority of respondents flossed regularly because they had access to dental floss and understood its importance to oral health. They also used toothpicks, toothpaste commercials, and used mouthwash brushes every morning and after breakfast. The school-age students had average brushing knowledge and experience. Additionally, because there has never been a program created for the Division of Northern Samar, the health education program is crucial.
