Abstract: it is mandatory for dentists to enhance their knowledge regarding the nature, associated hazards and infection control guidelines of BBV diseases.  Inability to gain relevant knowledge will result in reluctance to treat BBV infected patients, as shown by a study in which dental students were reluctant in treating AIDS patients because of lack of confidence in managing such patients.  In addition to knowledge, two other important traits of a dentist which influence the implementation of infection control guidelines and the treatment provided to BBV patients, are attitude and behavior of a dentist.
