    Aim: The aim of this study is to determine the extent of knowledge among various dental professionals and dental graduate students toward the post-extraction complications and management. Materials and Methods: A questionnaire-based, cross-sectional survey was conducted which included dental undergraduates from the 3rd year, 4th year, and interns; dental postgraduates; and dental professionals. The questionnaire consisted of 14 questions. Results: A total of 120 graduates and professionals participated in the study of which 39 were undergraduates, 52 were postgraduates, and 29 were professionals. The age distribution was between 18 and 56 years. Participation varied according to the year of study and experience and the postgraduates and professionals had high awareness about the post-extraction complications and management. Conclusion: The present study concluded that the knowledge about post-extraction complications and their management among most of the undergraduate students was less adequate when compared with that of postgraduates and professionals. Good quality of treatment can be ensured when the future dentists have a good knowledge of the complications and the methods of prevention and managing them.
