    Aim: The aim of this study is to assess the parental perception on general anesthesia (GA) in pediatric dentistry. Objective: The objective of this study is to assess the parental awareness through a self-awareness questionnaire. Materials and Methods: The parental perception on GA for children with mixed dentition was assessed through a self- administered questionnaire which was distributed among 100 parents whose children were as old as 1–5 years. Results: After the analyses of the questionnaire, it was seen that more than half of the respondents were aware of GA for children during dental treatment. The respondents were equally divided when questioned on the safety aspect of GA. Majority of parents preferred conscious sedation over GA. Conclusion: Although most of the parents would agree for their child to undergo GA, almost half the group of parents would prefer other methods or means, and this is due to their fear and lack of knowledge on GA.
