Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the knowledge of senior dental students about Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and Human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV).
Material and Method: This was a cross-sectional, descriptive, questionnaire-based study. In the study, a researcher-made questionnaire was used. The questionnaire had 2 sections. First section recorded demographic data of participants (age, gender), the type of faculty (Guilan University of Medical Sciences or the International Campus branch) and students’ semester (11th or 12th). The second section included 13 questions. Validity and reliability were determined. For each correct answer, score one was considered and for each wrong answer, score zero was determined. Their knowledge was categorized as poor (0-4), moderate (5-9), and good (10-13) Data obtained from research questionnaires was analyzed by SPSS software version 21 using chi-square, kruskal-wallis test and Mann Whitney. Significant value was set as p< 0.05.
