Our study showed high smoking rate among the undergraduate dental students. The social nicotine dependence was high in smokers and the KTSND was suitable in detecting smokers and non-smokers in the high prevalence smoking population. More emphasis ought to focus on tobacco prevention and cessation activities in the dental curriculum.
