Introduction: Teaching and learning conditions & environment are crucial elements in acquiring skills and abilities during students’ education and also providing them with a satisfactory professional future. The purpose of this study was to assess teaching and learning environment in different sections of Isfahan dentistry school from the viewpoint of dentistry students. Methods: DREEM questionnaire was translated into Persian by two academic members and its validity and reliability were confirmed in a pilot study. The questionnaires were filled by second-sixth year students who had experienced the practical and theoretical courses in eleven clinical wards in Isfahan dentistry school at least twice. The data collected by 138 questionnaires were analyzed by SPSS. Results: Total and mean scores of questionnaire in all wards were 99.75 and 1.99 respectively. Mean scores of questionnaire in 11 studied wards were 1.76- 2.90. Conclusion: Based on the obtained mean scores, the positive aspects of educational environment in surgical, internship, radiology, reconstructive and periodontology wards are less than the negative ones. In all wards, there is a significant gap between the present condition and standards so that educational environment needs to be improved.
