The parent’s guidance, especially the mother’s, is needed to promote the dental hygiene status upon children. Parents with higher education and knowledge are expected to have their children’s dental hygiene better than the lower ones. Nowdays, most mothers have an increasing numbers of higher education, so their children should have better dental hygiene, but the result of another research showed that the prevalence of caries was still high on children of 6 to 12 years old. Therefore, this aim of the study isto observe the relationship between the mother’s education and knowledge with their children’s dental hygiene status. The samples were mothers and their 6th year elementary school children at Kelurahan Ngagel Rejo, which were randomly selected from the Health Care Centre.
