The purpose of this research is assessing the level of knowledge and awareness of the students of general dentistry This is a cross-sectional study with a descriptive-analytical approach, conducted in 1397. 155 dental students of Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences were selected by random sampling method. The required information was collected using a questionnaire designed by Carter and Ogden and analyzed using SPSS software version 16. The results showed that in the “screening for oral mucus in high-risk patients", many people [94.19%] and "sufficient knowledge about the diagnosis and prevention of oral cancer", many people [59.35%] responded positively. In the selection and prioritization of oral cancer risk factors, most students [41.3%] smoked and then [34.2%] considered alcohol as the most effective risk factor. The findings showed that the level of awareness of the participants in the diagnosis of cancer lesions was enough, but the students did not have enough knowledge about all the risk factors for oral cancer and lesions associated with the disease.
