Dentists have traditionally been in charge of oral health teaching and screenings in academic settings. Strategies depending on teacher peer leaders and learners themselves have been used in light of the high cost and restricted availability of this expert-led approach. There were a total of 377 Institutes evaluated, 124 public and 253 private. Where various Institutes are located. For the public school system, there were 75 boys and 49 girls' Institutes. Coed lessons were offered in all private Institutes, although grades 6-10 were split evenly between male and female classrooms. The standards were strict enough that 312 institutes did not make the cut, leaving only 65 institutes that did. To conduct the research, twenty public Institutes were selected at random. Ten Institutes catering to females and ten to boys were included. Each of these institutes had one sixth-grade class included at random. This research aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of a streamlined oral examination conducted by teachers and peer leaders, as well as compare and contrast dentist-led (DL), teacher-led (TL), peer-led (PL), and self-learning (SL) OHE approaches.There was no statistically significant difference in the mean OHK and OHS scores among the three educator-led strategies. However, the OHB score for the peer-led strategy was considerably higher than the corresponding score for the teacher-led strategy (p0.05). Adolescents' oral health knowledge and oral hygiene status can be improved just as effectively by dentist-led, teacher-led, and peer-led oral health education initiatives
