A community evaluative cross-sectional study was undertaken from patients attending two selected dental clinics of Gurugram to record public awareness regarding Dental implants. The patients agreeing to participate in the interview, through predesigned and pre tested proformas were included. Patients were requested for using a closed ended dichotomized questionnaire by 140 patients during their exit from the clinics from 9 AM to 12 noon period. Since the average patient load in dental clinics were not too crowding; the total coverage of the sample was time consuming. While 63% did not have much information regarding dental implants which can be used to replace missing teeth; only 14% wanted more information regarding implants and 39% were attending the clinic to know about dental implants through dentist. The major difference between Dental Implant and Root Canal Treatment (RCT) was not clear to people.
