Dentists are exposed to infectious diseases, and if infection control guidelines are not applied correctly, dental offices can serve as a source of infection. Adherence to infection control rules can help prevent infection of the disease. In this study, information and performance of dental students were evaluated in infection control rules at Department of Dentistry. Place and Duration: This practical, analytical and transverse study was conducted among dental students at the Nishtar Institute of Dentistry, Multan for six months duration from September 2019 to February 2020. Methods: This study was conducted on 87 dental students. The data was collected using a survey of 9 questions and a checklist of 16 items. The data was analyzed using SPSS version 21 and identifying statistics using average and standard deviation (SD), t-test, Ki square test, Kruskal Wallis test, and Spearman correlation coefficient. Results: The severity level is set to P-0.05. 100% of participants wore sterile gloves and changed them for each patient, collected and disposed of waste after examining or treating each patient, blocked the needle after an anesthetic injection and changed the tip of tooth extraction; 94% wore masks and changed them for each patient; 89% wore clean white capes. It was found that the level of information of the students was moderate.
