      <ArticleTitle>Oral health behavior change framework in preschoolers: Systematic Review
      <Abstract>Background. Pre-school children have difficulty maintaining oral health. Studies show that preschoolers' dental and oral health depends on the attitudes and behavior of their parents towards dental and oral health. This systematic review aims to identify and analyze the framework through the Health Belief Model (HBM) approach and the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) for behavioral changes to maintain oral health in pre-school children.

Method. This systematic review was conducted using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA) statement. The literature search was carried out on the ScienceDirect, Google Scholar, Proquest, Pubmed, and Wiley Online Library databases, with a publication period between 2010 and 2021.

Results. The search returned 11,504 articles; after removing the duplicated articles, 3,041 articles remained, removing 8,463 studies after screening titles and abstracts. The remaining 26 papers were reviewed and checked for eligibility, so 16 articles were excluded. The collected final results of as many as ten articles that met the inclusion criteria.

Conclusion. Both the Health Belief Model and the Theory of Planned Behavior can help improve behavior change in pre-school children in maintaining oral health.</Abstract>
