The publication of the results of a thesis allows the dissemination of the findings through formal channels such as journals; however, the scientific production of the students is scarce. The objective of the research was to characterize the findings of the undergraduate theses published in scientific journals by the students of the Dentistry program. A descriptive, cross-sectional study was carried out, which evaluated 217 theses prepared by undergraduate students of the Faculty of Dentistry at Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos from 2016 to 2021. The theses were searched by the title and the name of the thesis student in Scopus, Web of Science, PubMed, SciELO, Google Scholar, and Lilacs databases. The theme of each thesis, place of publication, language and year of publication were recorded. Eight theses (3.7%) published the results in scientific journals. 50% of the them were related to Orthodontics and Maxillary Orthopedics; Scopus was the main database where the findings were published (75%, n = 6). All these were written by women and the results were published in international journals. The publication of undergraduate theses by Dentistry students at a Peruvian university is low; generally carried out by women, in Spanish, published in Scopus database and on themes related to Orthodontics-Maxillary Orthopedics and Basic Sciences.
