Abstract

Background: The initial five-year period in the child's development stage is the golden age, the period in which the child is in a period of growth and development. In the process of growth and development, children always experience health problems in the body, one of which is dental and oral health problems. These oral health problems can affect the general development of children. Therefore, the mother's role becomes dominant in dental care. Posyandu (Pos Pelayanan Keluarga Berencana dan Kesehatan Terpadu, Integrated Post Service of Health and Family Planning, a place/community supervised by health workers to do health promotion, monitoring children's growth and development) is the spearhead for mothers and their toddlers to check toddlers growth and development. Posyandu implementers are cadres who are the main movers in Posyandu activities. Cadres also play a role in providing counseling to toddler mothers. Based on the survey results, it is known that 60% of mothers knowledge of toddlers in maintaining dental hygiene for toddlers is still in the category of lack. This situation may be caused by the role of cadres in providing counseling in the maintenance of dental health.

Materials and Methods: Analyzing the relationship of posyandu cadres role in counseling to knowledge of mothers of children under five in the maintenance of toddler dental health in Posyandu. The design in this study was cross sectional analytic. Research data collection methods was carried out using questionnaires. Data was analyzed using the Spearman test with α = 0.05.              

Result: Most (58.3%) cadres have a good role. Mother's knowledge about the maintenance of dental health of children under five mostly was in poor category (80%). There was no significant correlation between the role of cadres in dental health education with maternal knowledge in the maintenance of toddler dental health (0.214 > 0.05). The correlation value shows a very weak relationship - 0.163.

Conclusion: There was no significant correlation between the role of cadres in dental health education with maternal knowledge in the maintenance of toddler dental health.

Keywords: Role of Cadres; Knowledge of Mother; Maintenance of Children’s Dental Health
