Abstract :

Introduction: Toothbrushing is an important activity to prevent teeth and mouth diseases, but children behaviour towards it is still low. One of methods to improve the children toothbrushing behaviour is by giving a health education. The aim of this experiment is to found out the effect of health education using modified snake ladders simulation game methods towards toothbrushing’s knowledge, attitude, and action application changes for school age children. Methods: The design used in this study was quasi-experimental design. The samples were gathered by using purposive sampling method consisted of 38 respondents based on the inclusion criteria which were divided into control and experimental groups. The independent variable was health education using modified snake ladders simulation game methods and the dependent variables were knowledge, attitude, and action application in toothbrushing. The data were analyzed by using Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test and Mann Whitney U Test with significance of α = 0.05. Result and Analysis: The results showed that there were enhancement for knowledge (p=0.000), attitude (p=0.001), and action application of toothbrushing (p=0.000) for post-intervention toward the experimental group. These data were strengthened by the result of Mann Whitney U Test statistical analysis that showed the significant differences for knowledge (p=0.002), attitude (p=0.026), and action application of toothbrushing (p=0.001). Discussion: It can be concluded that toothbrushing health education using modified snake ladders simulation game methods effected the toothbrushing’s knowledge, attitude, and action application changes for school age children. The suggestion for the further experiment is to give regular health education using snake ladders simulation game methods with addition of observation for action of toothbrushing at home to obtain more accurate result.
