    Introduction: Dental caries is one of the most prevalent chronic oral diseases across the world that can be both treated and prevented. There are several oral carious lesions, of which certain lesions can be excavated and certain lesions such as arrested caries are not essential to be removed .Hence altering the mode of treatment. The aim of this study is to analyze the knowledge regarding caries excavation among undergraduate dental students because many dental students are not aware about caries distinguishing features which may lead to misdiagnosis and eventually altering the treatment in their clinical practices. Materials and Methods: A total of 200 undergraduate dental students belonging to various dental institutions were given a questionnaire consisting of 10 questions regarding caries excavation. Results: According to the data analysis, even though the students were aware about caries excavation to some extent, a thorough knowledge was lagging in common among all the undergraduate dental students. Conclusion: All the students should be taught precisely regarding caries excavation using innovative ideas to improve better understanding, resulting in better treatment.
