longitudinal observational study using databases of the Demography and Family Health Survey (Encuesta Demográfica y de Salud Familiar, ENDES) from 2013 to 2016 and the following variables access to information, organism and sector supplier of information, geographic area, natural region, and year. This study also involved a descriptive, bivariate (chi-squared) and multivariate analysis (Poisson Loglinear Regression) with a confidence level of 95% and p < 0.05.


the proportion of access to oral care and hygiene information in the mass media by children under 12 years of age was 12.8% in 2013, decreasing to 8.94% in 2016. There was a positive impact of mass media as providers of information on oral health care adjusted by geographic area and natural region 2013 with prevalence ratio (PR) 1.96 (1.89-2.02); 2014 with PR 1.85 (1.82-1.87); 2015 with PR 1.61 (1.60-1.63); 2016 with PR 1.62 (1.60-1.64) and 2013-2016 with PR 1.69 (1.68-1.79).


access to oral care and hygiene information provided by the media has been declining in Peru; however, the media generally have an increased positive impact in this regard, compared to other information suppliers, even considering users' geographic area and natural region.
