*Dr. K. A. Kamala, S. Sankethguddad, S. G. Sujith and Trupti S. Bhosale

ABSTRACT

Background: The stress which is experienced by students may adversely affect their academic achievement, personal well being and longterm professional capabilities. The dental profession is one of the most stressful health professions. The purpose of this study was to investigate perceived sources of stress on undergraduate dental students. Methods: Modified version of the Dental Environment Stress (DES) questionnaire which was used to assess perceived stress among undergraduate dental students. Means and standard deviations were determined for stress scores of individuals for each item. Student’s t, one way ANOVA, and Tukey multiple comparison post hoc tests were used to analysed the data at the significant level of p- value of ≤ 0.05. Results: The top stressor for all years was my colleagues in college and hostel are not friendly and I chose dentistry with my parents interest. For most of these items, second and final year students reported more stress than first and third year but the final year students shows maximum stress among all academic years. Following theory lectures and completion of clinical quota is more stressful for final year students where as I don’t enjoy mess food and financial problems were more stressful for the first and second years respectively. Conclusion: The findings suggested that high levels of perceived stress existed in the professional students during the period of their courses. To manage the most common sources of stress in dental students, strategies for stress management must be implemented in dental education.

Keywords: Dental education, students, perceived stress, study year.
