Background : Oral hygiene is still a major problem for the elderly. Riskesdas in 2018 said dental problems in the age group of 55-64 increased 48.5% and ages 65 and above by 38.6%. Various dental health services programs continue to be developed to reduce dental and oral health problems, including by improving the quality of the media used.

Method : Research and Development (R&D) with Quasy experiment Pretest-Posttest group design. Variables in this study : Knowledge, attitude, brushing skills and debris index. There research project was 2 group : intervention 16 people given Ed-Dhentys Model and Control 16 people given Slide power point. Data tested using Wilcoxon and Mann-Whitney. They hypothesis test meaningfulness criterion uses the p-value 0.002 of the delta value (?). Result : The Ed-Dhentys model is feasible as a dental health education media with expert validation results of 92% and a p-value of and unpaired test results stating that this application is effective in increasing knowledge (?=6.81), attitude (?= 13.75), brushing skills (?6.93), and decreasing the debris index score (?=1.37) compared to the control group.
