Dental caries can begin early in life and the main ethology behind are frequent intake of sugars, improper feeding and lack of oral hygiene measures. Children suffering from caries as infants & toddlers have a greater probability of subsequent caries in both primary & permanent dentition, so in order to prevent this, dental practitioners have a key role in promoting preventive measures against dental caries. Among the various caries preventive strategies used, fluoride therapy has been the most effective method. During the last few years, there has been substantial decrease in caries and increased incidence of fluorosis and this has lead to greater attention and importance of topical fluoride therapy. Featherstone et al 1988 stated that the most important anti-caries effect of fluoride is considered to result from its action on tooth or plaque interface through promotion of remineralisation of early caries & reducing enamel solubility. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the knowledge and attitude among dental students regarding the use of fluoride toothpastes for children.
