Purpose: A web-based questionnaire survey was undertaken among the heads of pediatric dentistry departments to find out trainings received, participation in administrative responsibilities, expectations, stress related to the position, and overall satisfaction levels in dental institutes of India. Methodology: An online survey was sent to 188 heads of the pediatric dentistry after formulating and piloting the questionnaire. A descriptive analysis was performed using SPSS version 18.0. Results: Fifty-seven males and 43 females, making a total of 100 responses were received, making 53.2% response rate. The main issues came out to be lack of adequate training about the leadership role of heads and inadequate participation in major administrative activities related to department. The stress was primarily due to extensive paperwork, meetings, and effect on interpersonal relationships. Conclusion: It could be concluded that the respondents were not having a free hand in handling respective departments and there had been lack of formal trainings about leadership abilities and other soft skills before being appointed as head of the department.
