ABSTRACT

This study distributed questionnaires to multicultural women in Daejeon, Daegu and some parts of Gyeongbuk from June through September 2017 and collected them immediately. This study described the research goals and purposes for the selected multicultural women and excluded the subjects who refused to participate in the research. In addition, for the multicultural women’s proficiency in Korean, those who were unable to communicate in Korean in preliminary liaison were excluded. In oral health behavior according to general characteristics, there were significant differences according to age, marital status, length of residence in Korea and proficiency in Korean (* p<.05, **p<.005, *** p<.001), while in functional oral health literacy, there were significant differences according to age, marital status and proficiency in Korean (* p<.05, *** p<.001).
