Purpose: To assess paediatricians’ knowledge, attitude and awareness towards dental and oral health and treatment needs of their patients.
Materials and Methods: Eighty-four paediatricians practicing in four cities of North Karnataka, India, were randomly selected for the study and were requested to fill out an objective questionnaire without providing any oral health information.
Results: The present study shows that paediatricians who were surveyed had poor knowledge regarding dental and oral health and treatment needs in children.
Conclusion: Paediatricians need to update themselves on recent recommendations regarding dental and oral health so as to ensure that all their patients receive timely preventive and restorative dental care.

Keywords: awareness, oral health, paediatricians, survey
