Abstract
Introduction: Children encounter many accidents during their day to day activities. The Lack of awareness and knowledge regarding dental trauma result in delayed presentation in the dental office which leads to unfavorable prognosis of the tooth.

Methodology: A questionnaire was used to interview 300 Kashmiri mothers who routinely accompanied their children aged between 6 to 13 years to the Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry Govt.

Each question was provided with multiple options and mothers had to mark one option.
