Background and Objectives:  Some predisposing factors in inducing periodontal diseases can be prevented by increasing awareness. So, this study was accomplished to evaluate periodontal diseases knowledge by medical students of Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences in 2016-2017.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study, 210 medical students of Shahid Sadoughi university of medical sciences were randomly selected and their knowledge was assessed through a questionnaire. Independent t-test, one-way ANOVA, Tukey’s HSD and Pearson’s correlation coefficient were used for data analysis.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of knowledge score was 9.25±3.62. There was a statistically significant difference  between the mean score of knowledge and age, education level and students’ average score (p=0.0001). But there wasn’t a statistically significant relationship between the mean score of knowledge and gender (p=0.715).
Conclusion: Considering the results, knowledge of students was increased with the rise of the semester. Therefore, in order to promote the medical students’ knowledge, holding workshops in this field seems helpful.
