Background: This study aim of the study was to determine the knowledge and awareness among dentist's toward use of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Oral Health Dentistry. Materials & Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out on a total number of 300 dental surgeons (Male=150; Female=150) was participated in the study with age ranges from 20- to 55-year-old to know the knowledge and awareness among dentist's toward use of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Oral Health Dentistry. Written informed consent was obtained from the participants after explaining to them the purpose of the study. The sampling method included in the study is a simple random sampling method. A self-administered structured questionnaire was developed, and the data was collected. Both descriptive and analytical statistical measurements were done. Results: The majority of participants, 189 (63%) were said that Artificial intelligence will lead to major advances in dentistry and medicine. 48% agreed that Artificial intelligence can replace dentists/physicians in the future. When asked about the participant's whether Artificial intelligence can be used in 3-dimensional implant positioning and planning, majority of participants agreed to this information. Conclusions: Dentists have sufficient and satisfactory knowledge of AI; they are willing to improve their knowledge in this field. Participants shared an optimistic view and thought that AI will have a positive impact on dental future practice. A need to incorporate AI technology in dental curriculum exists.
