Introduction: Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a new method that is able to provide three-dimensional images in radiology and is useful for dentomaxillofacial imaging. This study aimed to investigate the cases administrated CBCT by dentists of Kerman (2015 year). 
Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on dentists in Kerman. The data were gathered using standard research questionnaires containing 20 questions about the CBCT prescription and 10-question on diagnostic value of CBCT with intraoral radiographs and other information regarding the participants (age, sex, job, participate in the retraining of radiology, retraining courses, radiation protection). Data was analyzed by T test, regression and SPSS 18. 
Results: Among 182 participants, 107 (52.26%) were male and the rest were female with an average age of 37.16±8.93 years. The mean score of the questions of CBCT was 75.75±3.43, and the diagnostic value of the study was 16.17±2.15. The value of questions was statistically significant between general practitioners and specialists (P=0.01). There was no difference between men and women in the administration of CBCT. The difference between male and female dentists for diagnostic value of CBCT and other X-ray was statistically significant (P=0.029). Between continuing medical education courses, retraining radiology, radiation protection programs, CBCT and diagnostic value with other radiological statistically significant correlation was observed. 
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that knowledge of dentists in the administration of CBCT and its diagnostic value with other X-rays was satisfactory.
