The aim of the study is to identify the prevalence and usage of yoga among dental practitioners as an alternative therapy for their occupational hazards. The scale used in the study has been developed by the researchers. 394 dentists in Chennai, India, have participated in the study. The end of the study perceives two set of results. One set shows that among the totaldentists, the percentage of dentists who have no occupational hazards by doing yoga is high which is appreciable. But on the other side, the result also reveals that the prevalence of yoga among dentists is low due to their disbelief of doing yoga as a remedy for their occupational hazards. The main objective of the study is to make dentists aware that yoga is a cost effective tool in treating occupational hazards.
