A questionnaire was prepared asking various kinds of oral hygiene related questions to about 639 people of Valsad, Gujarat, India. The people were priorly informed about the same and their identities were completely kept confidential.Total 639 people were selected for the study and a self-constructed questionnaire through Google form was sent to them through Google form. Responses received from the people were assessed in both numbers and percentages. The results obtained through the questionnaire from Google form showed a general lack of oral hygiene awareness and various treatments modalities and preventive measures available for the same as well as the people were not very aware too about the effects of oral hygiene practices on systemic health. There is a high-priority need for various educational camps or programmes to be constructed with the goal of creating an increase in the incorporation of various oral hygiene practices and even the treatment options available for the same in case of any existing dental problems thereby oral hygiene is achieved by the people for a longer duration and even the complications are treated at an early stage so that the worst outcomes can be prevented.
