Abstract: Abstract Aim - To assess the knowledge of dental students and practitioners on different occupational hazards associated with dentistry Objective - To assess and evaluate the type, prevalence and awareness towards the occupational hazards associated with dentistry. Background - Dental professionals are susceptible to various types of occupational hazards. These include exposure to infectious agents, radiation, noise, percutaneous exposure accidentally, hazardous dental materials, musculoskeletal disorders (affecting back, neck and shoulders), psychological problems, respiratory disorders and eye injuries. These occupational hazards are a great challenge to the dental professionals and therefore need to be identified and reduced or eliminated. Material and Method –A closed ended questionnaire containing 17 questions were given to 100 dental undergraduate students and 100 dental practitioners. Results- The most common form of physical hazard was musculoskeletal problem, chemical hazard was latex glove allergy and the most common form of biological hazard was needle stick injury among both the students and practitioners. The students and practitioners have a good knowledge on the type and prevalence of different occupational hazards.
