  • Abstract

    Dental professionals and students are exposed to various types of occupational hazards throughout their dental practice. When hazards are encountered on a daily basis, the risk that it poses to their health is unprecedented. The consistent use of right protective barriers, adequate instrument sterilization protocols, disinfection of equipment, knowledge of preventive measures against cross infection, and knowledge of corrective measures on accidental exposure/contact with contaminated matter is inevitable in safe dental practice. This article analyses exposure of dental students to biologic, physical, chemical, ergonomic and psychosocial hazards, and their knowledge of its prevention and management. The awareness of these hazards and its prevention and management will help toward the improvement of the health of the practitioner and, in turn, help them to better serve the society.
