    Aim: The aim of this study is to analyze the knowledge and awareness of dental students in the management of medical emergencies in pediatric dentistry. Materials and Methods: The study was conducted among dental undergraduates and postgraduates. A self-administered questionnaire was distributed to assess the awareness of medical emergencies management in pediatric dentistry. The questionnaire was distributed through online survey. The data were collected and statistically analyzed. Results: The level of awareness of emergency management was less among dental students and most of them felt less confident to manage an emergency. Most of the participants also felt the need for more training for the management of medical emergencies in pediatric dentistry. Conclusion: Dental students did not have sufficient knowledge of medical emergencies, drugs, and equipment and they expect this topic should be an integral part of their curriculum. A majority of them perceived the need for further training by means of hands-on courses.
