Abstract: The following document is a research that was carried out among the nursing students of Kampala International Univeristy, to assess the prevalence of dental caries together with oral hygiene practices. The document sought to ascertain the true prevalence which is recorded therein and the various oral hygiene habits that the nursing students had. This was justified by the documented prevalence of dental caries and poor oral hygiene in medical institutions (Karo.M.charity 2008). The other objectives and constituents of this research document include ascertaining various factors like; gender and age and their relationship with dental caries and oral hygiene status. Other major factors in the causation and increased risk of cariogenicity that were assessed, included the periodicity before change of toothbrush, the implement used during teeth cleanings, the frequency and periodicity of cleaning the teeth. Of summative importance were the diet the nurses took and their dental service- seeking habits which have been documented and their direct relation in causation of dental caries
