|Abstract:||This study compared the perceived sources of stress in the dental school environment between an American and a South East Asian (Singapore) dental school across their entire curricula (D1-D4 years). The dental environmental stress (DES) questionnaire was administered to 137 (98 percent) Singapore dental students and results were compared to a previous study conducted at an American school. Significant differences were found for 12 questionnaire items across the four classes for the American cohort as compared to 13 in the Singapore cohort. While the greatest stressor for Singapore students was completing graduation requirements, American students were most stressed by examinations and grades. The overall perception of stress by Singapore students was higher than for their American counterparts. The primary concern for both cohorts was, however, related to the different areas of their academic courses.|
