Abstract

Professionalism is a board competency needed by dentists to act effectively and efficiently. It is seen as a central part of both undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. The aim of the article is to evaluate the knowledge, attitudes and practices towards professionalism among dental undergraduates. A semi-structural questionnaire was used to collect the data from 201 students of Mamata Dental College, Khammam in 2019.Among which 160 are females and 41 are males. The results indicated that despite of age, gender and year of study all the participants possessed at least some elements of professionalism; recognizing these concerns and integrating them into professional educational programs can result in a better and more supportive health-care service for the public.
