This cross-sectional study was carried out among the dental professionals in Riyadh using an online survey. Dental clinics and hospitals in Riyadh were contacted and participants were asked to fill up the survey. Online questionnaire was constructed consisting of questions about demographic and personal data followed by questions about food impaction and its management. 410 dental professionals responded to the survey, which included 61% males and 39% females. Regarding their qualifications, 72% were BDS and 28% had done master’s or Saudi board post-graduation. The attitudes of dentists when fabricating or giving instructions to lab technicians needs to be improved.
