AbstractObjective: To assess the education outcome of building dental knowledge among parents of preschool children in Hong Kong. Method: Ethics approval (IRB UW12-334) was achieved. Workshops (seminars, group discussion and Q&A sessions) were given by outreach dentists in 9 kindergartens to build the dental knowledge among the parents. Oral examination was carried out for the children by 2 calibrated outreach dentists before the workshops. The parents were invited to complete the same questionnaire with 47 multiple choice questions to assess their dental knowledge before the workshop and 1 month after the workshop. Correct answer for each question was given a score, and the total score could be 0 to 47. Pearson correlation was run to analyze the relationship between the caries prevalence and the pre-workshop score as well as the score change. A sample of parents who did not attend the workshops was recruited as control. Paired t-test was carried out to assess the short-term education outcome, and two-sample t-test to compare the score between the test and control groups of parents. Result: There were 314 parents who participated in this study and 157 were in control group. The pre-workshop scores were negatively related to the caries prevalence (p<0.05). The score (±SE) of dental knowledge before the workshop in the tested and control group of the parents were 26.39±0.75 and 24.55±0.75, respectively (p=0.082), while their scores after the workshops were 31.78±0.66 and 25.64±0.67, respectively (p<0.001). Paired t-test showed a significant increase of the score of the test group (p<0.001) but not the control group (p=0.132). The change of score before and after workshops was not related to the caries prevalence (p=0.374). Conclusion: In this study, short term oral health knowledge of parents of preschool children was improved by attending the dental knowledge building workshop.
