Children suffer from dental caries and if left untreated, this leads to problems with eating, speaking, etc. In dentistry, the clinical practice is directed towards attitude that promotes oral health; and it is here that Pediatricians occupy a privileged position, since they are the first people to check and monitor the child’s health at a very early age. To assess Knowledge, Attitude, and Awareness of Pediatricians regarding the use of various preventive dental aids in children. A cross sectional study was carried out involving 205 Pediatricians across Bangalore participated by filling out a specially designed questionnaire. All the Pediatricians, 100% responded positively regarding the use of tongue cleaners, 98.5%regarding the use of xylitol chewing gums, 91.2% regarding the use of dental floss, whereas only 69.8% were aware of the use of tooth gauze, 65.9% corresponded to the use of breath strips, 64.9%responded to the use of fluoride mouthwashes and only 57.1% were aware of the use of modified tooth brushes. It is important to develop oral health information programmes to Pediatricians as they are in a unique position to contribute to dental health of young patients since the children are brought to their offices at an early age as well as parents accept their recommendations easily. Therefore it is imperative that the Pediatricians need to update themselves on various dental aids for use in children.
