Background Oral release of compounds from biomaterials occurs, and adverse reactions may follow dental treatment. Especially in allergically vulnerable patients contact allergy may occur. There are reports from many different countries on contact allergy from gold/palladium alloys, components from polymer-based materials, chromium/cobalt alloys, and nickel. Notwithstanding, educational emphasis, the practical application of preparation design routinely exceeds the ideal taper and casts a different light on retention and resistance characteristics described in both laboratory and theoretical work. Objective To Appraisal of the perspective level towards Occupational Hazards among Fixed prothodontic Staff at Selected Dental clinics, Saudi Arabia Method A cross-sectional survey was conducted at five dental clinics, Saudi Arabia. 27 items self-administered questionnaire was provided to 200 fixed prothodontic staff in the research setting based on their area of their specialties to assess the level of awareness towards occupational injury among fixed prothodontic staff at the selected dental clinics, Saudi Arabia. Results This study finding showed that awareness towards Occupational Injury among some fixed prothodontic staff at dental clinics was variable. The majority (98.5 %) of the fixed prothodontic staff had a high level of prespective towards Occupational hazards in relation to Blood spills should be cleaned up promptly with sodium hypochlorite. On the other hand of the fixed prothodontic staff had a lowest level of awareness towards Occupational hazards in relation to Used needles can be recapped after giving an injection. Although, concerning the Intermittent Level of Awareness the lowest level was awareness towards Occupational Injury in relation to Blood spills should be cleaned up promptly with sodium hypochlorite (0.5 %).While, regarding the highest Level of Awareness towards Occupational hazards was found in the item of HCWs with non intact skin should not be involved in direct patient care until the condition resolves (11.0 %). Conclusions The current study results revealed that there were high levels of perspective among the fixed prothodontic staff towards occupational hazards within the study setting.
