    Aim: The aim of this study was to assess and compare the dental student’s attitude toward dental communication skills among students in a South Indian dental college.

Hence, the main objectives of our study were to assess the attitude of dental students toward dental communication skills. Materials and Methods: Dental undergraduate students were asked to complete a questionnaire to assess the dental student’s attitude toward communication skill. Demographic data were also included in the study. Result: The results indicated that the students generally have positive attitudes toward learning effective dental communication skills. Conclusion: Dental communication skill should be a part of the dental curriculum to enhance the doctor–patient communication, which leads to better treatment outcomes.
