Medical personnel in the field of dental medicine are associated with an increased risk of occupational exposure to infections. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the level of knowledge of the students in the final years, within the Faculty of Dental Medicine, on preventing the transmission of infection in the dental office. Material and method: The evaluation was carried out on the basis of a questionnaire that included 22 questions regarding measures to prevent the transmission of infections in the dental office. Data was recorded using Microsoft Excel / 2010 spreadsheet and the statistical processing was performed with SPSS 22. Although the subjects had a positive attitude regarding the treatment of patients, they need to have better knowledge and adopt attitudes in order to minimize to the maximum, only at accident level, the transmission of infection in the dental office. In conclusion, the students’ level of knowledge must be constantly improved and evaluated.
