The aim of this study was to evaluate these skills in the faculty members of the Shahed Dental School in 2010. Materials and methods: Cross-sectional survey was done by asking the students to fill up a questionnaire regarding their opinions about the communication skills of their teachers, based on five-item Likert scale(very poor, poor, fair, good, very good).. The reliability of the questionnaire was tested in a pilot study on 10 students for one week by test-retest method and a reliability of 85/0 was obtained.
