dc.description.abstract To compare knowledge and attitude of dental students in two countries towards E-cigarettes and their long-term effects. MATERIAL AND METHODS: An anonymous cross-sectional survey, using self-administered questionnaires, was conducted amongst dental students from the University of California, Los Angeles School of Dentistry (UCLA) and Universidad Europea of Madrid (UE). RESULTS: There were significant differences in knowledge and perception of E-cigarettes between dental students from both countries. Three (3%) of the participants from UE sample smoked E-cigarettes every day, compared to none of the students from UCLA. Almost 54 (80%) students from UCLA claimed that they had never experimented with an E-cigarette, whereas 61 (65%) of UE sample reported not having experimented with E-cigarettes in the past. More than 15% of students in both populations were unsure of the potentially harmful effects of E-cigarette usage. A significantly higher proportion of the Spanish sample used conventional cigarettes compared to the US sample 53 (56%) compared to 36 (24%), P < 0.001). In addition, when compared to the UE sample, UCLA students rated E-cigarettes as being less harmful overall than tobacco P < 0.001. Furthermore, more than 86% of both populations indicated interest in learning more about the potential risks associated with E-cigarettes. CONCLUSIONS: This survey indicated that students from one dental school in the United States of America (USA) and one in Spain lacked the knowledge to address the rising E-cigarette population usage and provide information regarding them to patients. Specific educational programmes on E-cigarette hazards and long-term effects on oral and systemic health should be implemented in dental curricula in both of these schools in order to stay receptive to the changing field of tobacco education. spa
