Background: Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) is an intense negative drug response causing increasing bone destruction in the maxillofacial area of patients. Aims and Objectives: To evaluate the knowledge and attitude of dental practitioner regarding risk factors of MRONJ in Saudi Arabia. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional, questionnaire survey was carried out in King Khalid Hospital, Al-Kharj among dental practioners. Results: Approximately 60% of the practioners had a poor knowledge and there was a weak positive correlation with work experience. Conclusion: Poor knowledge regarding the MRONJ invites a continuing dental education specially to focus on general practioners.
