ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine and understand the perceptions and intention to utilize of the virtual reality-based oral health education contents among the general public. The study participants were selected by using the non-probability sampling methods. A total of 15 participants were selected, including 5 young people, 5 middle-aged people, and 5 elderly people. The focus group interviews were conducted in December 2022 and February 2023, with two sessions for each group. Through the focus group interviews, four core categories and ten central topics were derived. The four core categories were derived from the focus group interviews, including experiences and perceptions, educational effects of content, considerations, and limitations of utilization, and the central themes were: experience of using VR-based content, feelings after using VR-based content, expectation of new educational effects, utilization of environmental factors, activation of education, consid erations needed, absence of content information, technical limitations, lack of content, and insufficient environment for educational operation. When developing and implementing virtual reality-based oral health education content, it is necessary to consider age-specific characteristics and come up with a way to complement the limitations of virtual real ity-based educational content.
