This study aimed to evaluate the knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) regarding temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders among postgraduate dental students in Kanpur, India. A total of 75 postgraduate dental students from various dental colleges in Kanpur were surveyed using a validated questionnaire distributed online. Descriptive statistics were employed for data analysis. Results revealed variations in attitudes toward TMJ disorder management across different dental specialties, with respondents expressing limited confidence in diagnosing and managing TMJ disorders. The findings underscored deficiencies in the current dental curriculum regarding TMJ disorder education, highlighting the need for enhanced training to improve clinical skills in diagnosis and management.
