    Aim: The aim was to evaluate the blood glucose level using gingival crevicular blood (GCB) in patients undergoing routine dental treatment and to correlate the term glucose level of GCB and venous blood. Background: Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder characterized by polyphagia, polydipsia, and polyuria. The conventional laboratory methods to diagnose diabetes are more time-consuming and require elaborate equipment. This study was undertaken to evaluate a quick, safe, and non-invasive method to screen for diabetes during the routine periodontal examination. Materials and Methods: A total of 30 patients who came for routine dental treatment were chosen. Tooth no. 46 was taken as a standard as it was easy to access. The periodontal examination was done, and blood oozing from gingival crevice was taken on to the test strip which was loaded into the glucometer. Immediately following the collection of GCB sample, venous blood sample was collected and the blood sugar level (RBS) was estimated. The reading obtained from the GCB and venous blood samples was recorded and compared using Karl Pearson’s correlation. Results: A total of 30 patients were selected which included 16 males and 14 females. The mean value of venous blood and GCB was 115.4 and 116.33, respectively. Karl Pearson’s correlation coefficient was 0.009257. Paired t-test was to calculate the t value, and there is no big difference between GCB and venous blood levels (P = 0.2395). Conclusion: The study indicates that GCB could be used in routine glucometric analysis to patients undergoing dental treatment.
