AUTHOR(S): Dr. Uma Sudhakar and R Vasupriyan
The purpose of this study / survey was to determine the knowledge of microbial pathogen causing periodontal diseases in host among dental students.
Methodology: Questionnaire comprising of 20 questions was distributed among 100 dental students. people participated in survey were asked about microorganism involved in periodontal disease, test involved in determination of proteolytic activity of oral anaerobes, about bacterial communication in biofilm, color coded complex of periodontal microorganisms.
Conclusion: In nutshell, we arrived to a point that students lack knowledge on micropathogens causing disease in host and need a focus on topics such as microbial interactions with the host in periodontal disease.
