Activities are carried out in several stages. The first stage was a pre-test in the form of a questionnaire to 39 students and asked students to do a demonstration of brushing their teeth before counseling. In the second stage, participants were given counseling and demonstrations on how to maintain oral hygiene by brushing their teeth and using a tongue scraper. In the third stage, participants were given a post test and asked to demonstrate again after the counseling. Based on the evaluation of the activities, there has been an increase in the knowledge and skills of students after counseling and demonstrations on how to maintain dental health by brushing teeth and using a tongue scraper correctly. Students who have good knowledge about how to maintain oral health increased by 64.1%. The number of students who were able to brush their teeth properly increased by 65.67%. Meanwhile, students who were able to use a tongue scraper correctly increased by 69.23%. Therefore, outreach activities need to be held regularly to get optimal results.
