    Background: The ability to self-assess is a critical skill that all health professionals must be able to do, to achieve competence. This is essential for the dental students that their education and practice apply for different clinical and paraclinical procedures and to assess proper knowledge of fixed partial denture (FPD) are necessary among working dental students. Aim: The aim of this study is to obtain information about dental students, perceptions, and self-confidence levels regarding FPD procedures. Materials and Method: A self-administered questionnaire with 20 questions was prepared and circulated among 100 dental interns of two different colleges. Level of confidence was rated using five-point rating scale. Data collection and analysis will be done based on frequencies and percentage values using SPSS software. Results: Of 100 dental interns, 33.18% were confident, 20.56% were very confident, 27.64% were little confident, 16% were very little confident, 2.64% had no confident in FPD procedures, and the results were significant statistically. Conclusion: Awareness among the dental interns about FPD procedure can help in eliminating any negative image of the FPD procedure in patient’s mind due to lack of knowledge.
