Abstract: Introduction: Prescription writing is one of the core competencies expected from medical and dental fraternity. Prescribing appropriate drugs in correct doses may influence a patient’s health positively. Aim & Objective: Due to concern growing regarding incomplete or ill eligible prescriptions, the present survey was undertaken to assess the prescription writing skills of interns and postgraduates in a dental college located in Guntur city. Material and methods: Questions regarding awareness are assessed for patient’s details, doctor’s information, and their legibility using self-administered, pretested, validated semi-structured questionnaires. The collected data was analyzed using SPSS v.20 and subjected to Chi-square, Pearson’s correlation coefficient tests, where p-value = 0.05 is considered as statistically significant. Results: 84.1% of students seek the need for reinforcing classes during their third and fourth years of training for prescription writing. In prescribing a drug 50.8% of students are using the generic name and 49.2% are using trade names. 15.1% of students are not concerned about patient education and discharge counseling on their medicines. 14.3% of students don’t know that legible handwriting is important for prescription writing. 32.5% of students stated that the faculties are not discussing prescription writing as a part of case discussion while 67.5% of students stated yes among which 38.1% of students opined that they rarely discuss. Conclusion: The awareness and perceptions regarding the prescriptions writing skills of the students were found to be substandard and it requires the use of a standardized prescription format.
