The problem experienced by blind children is that difficult to do self-activity especially in behavioral dental and oral health care. One of the behavioral change strategies for blind children is through dental and oral health education with counseling activities which should put attention to the characteristics of the blind child as well as utilize the hearing and touch senses by implementing 3D Braille Media. It is a development of 3D printing media comprising procedure of proper tooth brushing. The aim of this research is to create 3D Braille as a media of learning to improve tooth brushing skills for blind children. We implemented Research and Development (R & D) method which has five stages of research: data collection, design and build, expert validation, model test and model result. It’s performed in the Quasy experiment pre-test and post-test with control group design sample divided into 2 groups, of which 15 blind children were in intervention group using 3D Braille media and 15 blind children were in control group using Braille flipcharts. The data used intraclass corellation coeffiecient test, paired and independent sample test. The results show that 3D Braille is worthy of a learning media about tooth brushing with p-value of 0.000. Besides, it is more effective in improving tooth brushing skills with p-value of 0.002, as well as lowering the index debris with p-value of 0.020. According to the results of the research, it can be inferred that the impementation of 3D Braille Media model is more effective in improving the tooth brushing skills and lowering the index debris compared to Braille flipcharts.
