Abstract: Hospital acquired infection damages patients, prolongs hospital stays, consumes scarce hospital resources, and thus presents a major challenge for clinical governance. Hand hygiene is recognised as the primary determinant of the incidence of these healthcare associated infections. Hence the main objectives of this study was to evaluate the knowledge of hand washing techniques among the undergraduate dental students and to train the dental students about the hand washing techniques properly proposed by World health Organisation. A sample of 70 undergraduate dental students was selected to evaluate the knowledge of hand washing technique. A proper hand washing technique given by World health organisation was used to evaluate and train the students. Pre assessment, training and post assessment of knowledge about the hand washing technique was done. The results were statistically studied. Pre assessment showed that there was a lag in proper hand washing technique. Many students were unaware of the few steps in the proper hand washing technique. A proper training was given about the Handwashing technique and the students were evaluated after the complete training. The results of the post assessment showed an improvement in the hand washing practice which was statistically significant. From the result, it was clear that the hand washing awareness and compliance among the dental students were found to be very low. Proper training was given to the undergraduate students which are needed for the practitioners before entering into the clinical practice.
