Introduction: Infection control measures taken by students during their undergraduate training is an important component of the curriculum. Dentist is regarded to be the most susceptible person to cross–contamination during multiple clinical processes. There is a need to have proper knowledge & implementation of various infection control practices by the students during their training.

Methodology: This study consists of 200 subjects of third & fourth-year dental students of a dental college in northern India. A questionnaire was developed with 25 closed & open-ended questions related to lectures & clinical demonstration on infection control measures, knowledge of infection control practices in prosthodontics clinic, evaluation of enactment of these practices in clinical posting, and student's satisfaction with their knowledge & implementation in clinical infection control.

Result: All the 200 participants responded to the questionnaire in pre and posttest evaluation. Among the entire participant, there is a makeable difference of knowledge of infection control which shows mean values from (Pre-test-6.0850) to (Post-test - 22.5000) respectively. In addition, the standard deviation values in pre-test & post- test evaluation are (2.02442 – 5.73712). The T value – 37.652 also shows a statistically significant difference after remedial sessions being held (P<0.0001).

Conclusion: The findings from this study showed an adequate amount of improvement after remedial classes on infection control measures in the prosthodontics clinic.
