For the collection of research data, the volunteers answered a questionnaire about dentoalveolar trauma containing twelve questions, two subjective and ten objective multiple choice questions. Results: The results revealed that 100% of the firemen weren't trained about dentoalveolar trauma. only 24% have already had some experience with this kind of injury and only 14% of them would seek a dental clinic faced with a patient with a dentoalveolar trauma.
