In brief: It's not-

One cannot transmit oral thrush.
It's the result of the immune system that is unable to control the yeast that is found in the mouth of humans. It can happen when one uses medications that suppress the immune system (eg. Transplant patient, asthma patient) or when someone is infected with hiv.

Transmission is not necessarily an accurate term since it is part of the normal human micro biome; thrush is the result of an impaired immune system or else alteration of the micro biome, favoring the growth of this yeast.
