This study is based on a questionnaire organized on the basis of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) equivalent. The research has been completed by volunteering dentists, members of Fthiotida prefecture (Greece) dentists’ association, concerning students of oral health and hygiene as well as their social attributes. The proposed methodology adopts generalized linear models, as well as other statistical methods, oral health and hygiene differentiations while representative independent variables included the gender and the age of the participants. Consequently, the objective of the present study is focusing on the statistical processing by comparing the junior high schools’ results with the utilization of both parametric and nonparametric methods. The present study adopts a holistic approach of nutrition habits’ exploration, since the Fthiotida prefecture ideally combines rural and urban areas, thus revealing the possibility of its residents’ balanced vegetarian-meal daily value intake and the outcoming results’ evaluation with the support of advanced statistical tools.
