Abstract
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the level of knowledge of Lins School of Dentistry - Methodist University of Piracicaba universitary students in relation to risk factors, prevention and early diagnosis of oral cancer.
This is a descriptive study of quantitative approach and transversal model, where a questionnaire containing 37 questions on the subject was applied to 247 students distributed among the first and fifth year classes. The data were submitted to the Chi-square test at 5%. The knowledge was progressive in every year of study, with students from first to third years not yet demonstrating the necessary knowledge of the subject addressed. However, those in the fourth and fifth years having studied the subjects related to the theme, showed to be minimally suitable for coping with oral cancer prevention campaigns, since these stimulate the knowledge and train the students to attend the patients at risk.
