Introduction. One of the factors that influence the care of pediatric patients is the susceptibility of children to easily develop fears and fears in an unknown situation and especially when it comes to dental practice. Objective of the study is to know the experiences of stomatology students in relation to the control of the behavior of the pediatric patient. Methodology. For this, a qualitative analysis was carried out in a transcendental phenomenological approach. Why the interview was conducted to all students who met the selection criteria to obtain the saturation of the information. The method of data collection was approved by Marshall C 1, and the interview following the approach of Seidman I 2 that recommends conducting three separate interviews to participants. Results. The information obtained through interviews and videos was analyzed through the Atlas.Ti computer program. Where the lack of confidence of the students at the time of attending pediatric patients is obtained as results. And how this confidence is acquired at the moment of carrying out their pre-professional practices guided by the teacher. Conclusions. It is concluded that the student cannot acquire sufficient skills to achieve control of the child’s behavior at the time of dental care, despite having the theoretical knowledge. But this can be provided as long as the student becomes aware and puts into practice what they have learned in theory.
