Abstract: Introduction: Due to their high prevalence and incidence, Oral diseases represent one of the main health problems of children. However, if properly prevented and treated early, these oral diseases like caries and periodontal diseases are treatable with health care gains. Aims and objectives: To access oral health knowledge and practices among secondary school children. Materials and methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted on 300, 11 to 14 years old secondary school going children from randomly selected 8 schools. It was carried out with the help of questionnaires. All the responses were recorded and analysed. Results: On the basis of the data collected, children had a positive attitude towards oral hygiene practices. Yet, their parents’ role was limited.The children also recognized the importance of oral health to the well-being of the body. Also, the children visited the dentist only when in pain. Conclusion: Although the oral hygiene practices among children showed acceptable results, their attitude towards regular dental visits and their parents’ supervision in oral hygiene practices should be improved.
