Sažetak

Background/Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate oral health
knowledge, attitudes and habits regarding oral health among nurses and to
evaluate if there is a difference in self-reported oral health behavior in relation
to the degree of professional education.
Methods: The study was conducted on a sample of 100 subjects, both gender,
aged 22 to 62. The respondents were nurses with completed secondary school
(49%) and nurses with bachelor’s or master’s degrees in nursing (51%). The
study was conducted via the Croatian version of the Hiroshima University-Dental
Behavioral Inventory (HU-DBI) questionnaire.
Results: Nurses with a bachelor’s or master’s degree had a significantly higher
HU-DBI score than nurses with completed secondary school (p=0.033). Statistically
significant difference was found in the following questions: I brush each
of my teeth carefully (p=0.026), I put off going to the dentist until I have a
toothache (p=0.008) and I have had my dentist tell me that I brush very well
(p=0.016).
Conclusion: The obtained results show that healthcare professionals with
higher education (bachelor’s or master’s degree in nursing) have more knowledge
on oral health and that they apply this knowledge in their daily oral hygiene
routine.
