Abstract

Background: Studying dentistry environment is important to assess stress causes, which is harmful for educational system.

Objectives: The present study was accomplished to evaluate the level of stress caused by studying environment and related factors in dental students of Yazd, IR Iran.

Materials and Methods: This was a cross-sectional study accomplished on 150 dental students. Data collecting tools were the specific and standard questionnaire “Dental Environment Stress (DES)” and demographic questionnaire. For statistical analysis, t-test, analysis of variance (ANOVA), Tukey post hoc test and Pearson correlation coefficient test were used. Collected data was analyzed using SPSS ver.17.

Results: The total average of stress score was 1.4 ± 0.6 (Maximum: 4). Among the stressful fields, the maximum and minimum averages were related to academic job (1.8 ± 0.8) and personal factor (1.07 ± 0.7). Besides, there was a statistical significant difference in the average of stress score between girl and boy students (P = 0.04). In addition, there was a statistical significant difference between student’s stress score in different academic years (P = 0.003), which was significantly more in students of fifth and sixth years of study.

Conclusions: Stress had a moderate level in dental students of study, which requires more attention. Due to the most level of stress in students of fifth and sixth years, it is recommended to take specific actions for this sensitive period of dentistry education.
