Perceived barriers are most important dimensions in anticipating protective behavior for health. Identifying barriers of oral health can help researchers in designing better and more effective intervention t promote this behavior. Aim of study reported here was identifying perceived barriers of mothers in brushing teeth of their 3- 6 years old children.
Materials and Methods: This qualitative study was conducted in Kamyaran in 2014. Purposeful sampling with highest diversity was conducted. 40 mothers of 3-6 years old children were interviews using deep semi structure interview technique. Data were analyzed using thematic content analysis method.
Results: Barriers were categorized in two main groups including “perceived barriers related to mother and family members “and “barriers related to child”. Most important barrier was the attitudinal factors of mothers.
