The responses were descriptively analysed. Results: The cl inical experience of 162 dental students, who responded, was evaluated. Overall, the students conveyed positive and neutral perceptions of their clinical experience in all criteria of the seven domains. Articulation domain showed the highest positive feedback (93.5%) while the general learning environment domain showed the highest negative feedback (28.1%). Conclusions: The clinical experience and the impact of the clinical teachers were mostly satisfactory.
