The purpose of the experimental research was to study the effectiveness of a developed teaching program on promote oral health literacy and patient-centered communication. The 60 dental students participated in this study; 30 dental students in experiment group and 30 dental students in control group by simple ramdomization. Data were collected by rating scale -based questionnaires with reliability of .980 -.974 and analyzed byparied sample t-test and MANOVA. The results were found thatthe dental students particpated in an experiment group showed statistically significant in mean score after experiment higher than before experiment (t = 6.982 and 18.074, ω2 = .614 and .916 respectively, p< 0.05) and the dental students particpated in an experiment group had mean score higher than a control group in immediately after experiment(Wilks's lambda =.537, F = 24.609, p< 0.05). By change of oral health literacy in experiment group and control group had mean score 3.160and2.733 and patient centered communication 4.115 and 3.413 respectively.
