The high occurrence of oral disorders has established them as a notable matter of public health concern. This emphasizes the pivotal function of oral health instructors in advocating optimistic awareness and conduct related to oral health among the population. The knowledge, attitude, and practice of healthcare professionals towards oral health have a considerable impact on the community, as they serve as primary sources of health education and initial points of contact within the community. The oral health conduct and mindset of paramedical students in developing countries have been insufficiently researched compared to those in developed countries. As such, this investigation aimed to appraise the oral health well-being of paramedical students registered at Dasmesh College of Nursing. The objective of the research was to appraise and scrutinize the comprehension, disposition, and behaviour pertaining to oral health among the paramedical students enrolled in Dasmesh College of Nursing.
