Abstract:

The aim of this study is to assess the knowledge and attitudes regarding radiation induced oral damage amongst the dental students. The purpose of this study is to create awareness and determine the understanding of radiation induced oral damage among dental students. This study was conducted based on a questionnaire which consisted of 10 questions through a web-linked application called Survey Monkey. A convenient sample size of 100 consecutive dental students who are currently practicing in Chennai participated in the study. As an overall result, most of the participants are aware of radiation induced oral damage. As a conclusion, the awareness of radiation induced oral damage and development among dental students in Chennai is adequate but certain knowledge has to be brushed up among them for a higher level. Furthermore, they need to be trained on these grounds to help them treat their patients with more consent and awareness.
