Abstract


There are several prosthodontic treatment procedures being done in undergraduate dental training. One of those procedures is the fabrication of complete dentures, which according to various studies have been proven to be the most difficult procedure to learn and perform. Majority of dental students did not exhibit high confidence in making complete dentures. This is a cross-sectional study, which utilized a closed-ended questionnaire. The questionnaire included questions including participants' gender, GPA, confidence levels in treating different types of prosthodontic patients and satisfaction levels from their undergraduate training in various modalities. Higher mean values show greater confidence and satisfaction levels among the interns. It can be noted that the majority comparisons based upon gender and GPAs were found to be insignificant. However, there was significant higher confidence level noticed in females when treating patients with fixed partial dentures. There is no significant relationship between gender and confidence levels. Low GPA students showed better satisfaction towards their undergraduate clinical training.

Keywords: Dental Interns, Confidence, Prosthodontics procedures.
