 Abstract
The research had an investigation of relevance between functional oral health literacy, oral health knowledge, and oral health behaviors of college students. Survey of 410 students in K city college done from June 22 to 26, 2015 was analyzed, and the final analysis subject was 398 students. The result were 281(70.6) students with experience of oral health education, 117(29.4) students without experience of education, and there were 194(48.7) students who had difficulty several times with the material and explanation while attending the education, and 128(32.2) students who had difficulty a few times. Scores of functional oral health literacy were low for more than half of the college students. The higher the functional oral health literacy score, the higher oral health knowledge was shown, and oral health knowledge turned out to be affecting functional oral health literacy. Therefore, an effective program for delivering oral health knowledge to improve low functional oral health literacy of college students must be developed.
