Working and academic activities generate stress that according to how the person has lived, faced and solved it determines an adaptative or a pathological answer. Besides stress, it has been described a characteristic phenomenon of those who work in the attention to people: the burnout, known by the acronym SBO, it is a syndrome of emotional fatigue, lack of personification and low personal realization. Either stress or the SBO has been broadly studied among the health professionals. Regrettably, these pathologies begin to be developed since undergraduate studies; diverse research works in different parts of the world coincide in pointing out their concerning levels among Dentistry students. The objective of this article is to expose the recent findings of the international literature around stress and the SBO among these students critically, as well as to outline the necessity to develop research works on these phenomena at a Latin American level.
