The subjective oral health perception refers to the oral health condition a person perceives him-self/herself. A positive motivation may be given for personal oral health management. There is a relationship between subjective oral health per-ception, oral health conditions and oral health be-haviors (1-3). and the subjective health level is a useful way to easily and simply assess adolescents’ health (4).
