Objectives: This study aims to recognize the importance of dental hygiene process diagnosis of dental hygiene process which can comprehensively grasp the patient’s problem and to use it as a basis for establishing the patient’s preventive treatment plan. Methods: This study did survey to 443 patients who received treatment based on the oral health care program from a dental clinic in Busan from January 2015 to January 2017. Data analysis was performed using IBM SPSS Statistics (Version 21.0), and statistical significance level was set at α=0.05. Binary logistic regression analysis was performed to the dental hygiene problems affecting the dental hygiene plan. Results: There were significant differences in dental hygiene problems between male and female respondents on various dental problems such as dental plaque deposition, attrition, stain, dental fear, possibility of jaw joint disorder, food pressing, possibility of malocclusion. There were also significant differences in dental hygiene plans between male and female respondents in air-Jet, non-smoking education, and sealant. The most common dental hygiene plan was scaling, The problem of stain showed that the scaling plan was 0.20 times less. The explanatory power of the model was 43.5%, and the Hosmer and Lemeshow tests were 0.345. Conclusions: Therefore, if we continue to study the factors affecting the dental hygiene problems and the plan, we can reduce the burden of the dental hygienists applying the dental hygiene process in the dental clinic. And, it is expected that the oral health care program using the dental hygiene process will spread to the dental clinic as an excellent oral preventive program.
