This article aims to find out how the dental students at New York University College of Dentistry (NYUCD) evaluate the balance between the amount of theory taught and practice time allotted in cavity preparation presented in General Dentistry Simulation I so that recommendations to improve the curriculum can be formulated. An IRB approved anonymous six-question survey questionnaire was distributed to the dental students in the second (D2), year at NYUCD over a 3 year period. The questionnaire
