The collected data were analyzed in SPSS V. 20 by Chi-squared, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), t-test, and regression analysis.
Results: Mean age of subjects were 23.5 years. 53.6% subject had moderate knowledge about halitosis. The results revealed that the fifth and sixth year students had more information than the third and fourth year students (P<0.0001). Comparing the performance of female and male students indicated a better hygiene status in females. Based on Chi-squared test results, the frequency of using mouthwash was significant in terms of the academic year (P=0.049).
Conclusion: The mean knowledge score of students about halitosis was moderate. knowledge score and oral hygiene status had no significant relationship with marital status. Despite females having a significant better oral hygiene compared to males, the knowledge score about halitosis had no relation with gender. Students with higher academic grades, had significantly higher knowledge score about halitosis and maintained a significant better oral hygiene by using  Chlorhexidine (CHX) mouth wash more frequently.
