Background and Objective: The purpose of this process was to utilize the flipped classroom for the knowledge
and satisfaction improvment of dental students in the preclinical courses of periodontics and pediatric dentistry.
Methods and Materials: Students (n=28 in each course) were divided into two groups randomly . In one
group the students were instructed by the traditional method (lecture and demonstration),in the other one the
students were asked to watch the prerecorded films and the classroom was converted to a place for discussion.
Results: Evaluation was done using pre-test and post-test in each group. Results have shown that the
knowledge of the students was improved in both groups, but there were not statistically differences between
them. All of the students preferred flipped classroom to the lecture one, and were satisfied.
Conclusion: This article demonstrates that learners seem to prefer a flipped classroom method. Certainly ,it
was rated more positively than the traditional classroom on many different characteristics.
