    Introduction: Chewing side preference (CSP) is said to occur when mastication is recognized exclusively/consistently or predominantly on the same side of the jaw. It can be assessed using the direct method - visual observation and indirect methods by electric programs, such as cinematography, kinetography, and computerized electromyography. Medical professionals further acknowledge the existence of the dominant foot and eye. Thus, there might be the presence of dominant CSP related to our favored hand. Materials and Methods: A total of 40 students were selected and were visually observed on their handedness and chewing side. The data were noted and analyzed. Result: From the total sample of 40 subjects, only 6 subjects (15%) were left-handed, and 34 subjects (85%) were right-handed people. As far as the preferred chewing side (PCS) is concerned, there were 15 subjects (37.5%) used the left side of the mouth as the preferred side for chewing and 25 subjects (62.5%) used the right side of the mouth as the preferred side for chewing. There was a notable relationship between handedness and PCS.
