Abstract

Background and aims : To assess the awareness and attitude towards oral diseases amongst the medical students in Udaipur.

Materials and Methods : A cross sectional study was conducted using a structured questionnaire on approximately 200 randomly selected medical students. A specially designed questionnaire consisting of 20 close ended questions divided into four sections used to assess the knowledge, attitude, awareness on systemic conditions related to oral health and management of dental trauma. Data obtained was analyzed using the SPSS version 15. Chi – square test was used to find the statistical significance. Results: Oral awareness and attitudes were found to be fair among the medical students in Udaipur

CONCLUSION : The dental awareness, attitude and knowledge of the post graduate students was better when compared to that of the under graduate students. It can be concluded that very few students maintained the routine dental check up, suggesting lack of positive attitude towards oral health.

Key Words : Dental knowledge, awareness, attitudes, medical students.
