The aim of the present study was to evaluate self-reported oral health attitudes and behaviours among undergraduate Sudanese dental students and to compare differences in oral health behaviours and attitudes related to gender and level of dental education. A modified Arabic version of HU-DBI questionnaire was used to collect the data and the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS®) version 22 was used. One thousand two hundred and forty three dental students (297 male, 946 female) aged 20.1 + 1.8 years were participated in this study. Overall, the findings of the current study showed that Sudanese dental students in clinical years were more aware of oral health care than those of preclinical years. Apparently, Oral health care behaviour and attitudes of Sudanese females dental students were better than males. General speaking as shown in this study indicate better oral health behaviours and attitudes among Sudanese dental students than their regional and international counterparts.
