We study relations between transitivity, mixing and periodic points on dendrites. We prove that, when there is a point with dense orbit which is a cutpoint, periodic points are dense and there is a terminal periodic decomposition. We also show that it is possible that all periodic points except one (and points with dense orbit) are contained in the (dense) set of endpoints. It is also possible that a dynamical system is transitive but there is a unique periodic point which, in fact, is the

We also prove that on almost meshed continua (a class of continua containing topological graphs and dendrites with closed or countable set of endpoints), periodic points are dense if and only if they are dense for the map induced on the hyperspace of all non-empty compact subsets.
