Classification of occlusion reconsidered. (1/671)

Katz's quantitative modification of Angle's occlusion classification has been found to have a high intra- and inter-examiner agreement among orthodontists. In the present study an attempt was made to introduce a 'combined' system comprising Katz's modification and overjet/overbite millimetric measurements in order to attain a more meaningful and complete classification of malocclusion than is presently available. A group of 32 raters (16 orthodontists and 16 senior-year students) examined 14 study models twice, with an interval of at least 1 month between examinations. In total, 448 x 2 determinations were performed. The percentage agreement of the Angle, the modified and the 'combined' systems, as well as the performance of the orthodontists versus the students were compared using the paired t-test. The percentage agreement obtained by both orthodontists and students was highest for Katz's modification and lowest for Angle's method. The overjet/overbite measurements affected the agreement in Katz's modified technique. The orthodontists surpassed the students with respect to Angle's method (P = 0.025), whereas no statistically significant difference existed between orthodontists and students regarding Katz's modification or the 'combined' system. It is concluded that in view of the relatively low agreement in the 'combined' method, it cannot be recommended for clinical application. The Katz's modified method, on the other hand, may be a helpful supplement to Angle's classification.  (+info)

The changing face of dental education: the impact of PBL. (2/671)

The past decade has seen increasing demands for reform of dental education that would produce a graduate better equipped to work in the rapidly changing world of the twenty-first century. Among the most notable curriculum changes implemented in dental schools is a move toward Problem-Based Learning (PBL). PBL, in some form, has been a feature of medical education for several decades, but has only recently been introduced into dental schools. This paper discusses the rationale for the introduction of a PBL pedagogy into dental education, the modalities of PBL being introduced, and the implications of the introduction of PBL into dental schools. Matters related to implementation, faculty development, admissions, and assessment are addressed. Observations derived from a parallel-track dental PBL curriculum at the University of Southern California (USC) are presented and discussed. This program conforms to the Barrows (1998) concept of "authentic PBL" in that the program has no scheduled lectures and maintains a PBL pedagogy for all four years of the curriculum. The USC dental students working in the PBL curriculum have attained a high level of achievement on U.S. National Dental Boards (Part I) examinations, significantly superior to their peers working in a traditional lecture-based curriculum.  (+info)

The EXCEL Program: strengthening diversity. (3/671)

The Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (BUSDM) initiated a program in the summer of 1993 to strengthen diversity in the entering class of first-year students. The Experiential Center for Excellence in Learning (EXCEL) Program is a voluntary, one-month-long prematriculation experience that combines didactic, laboratory, study skills, and social activities to prepare participants to transition into the rigorous first-year curriculum. From 1996 to 2000, ninety students participated in EXCEL. The two primary reasons cited for participating were to become familiar with the school, faculty, and classmates and to strengthen basic science background. Participants' ages ranged from twenty to over forty. Fifty-nine percent of participants had been out of college for more than one year; 10 percent had been out of school for three years or more. Thirty percent listed nontraditional predental school majors. Fifty-six percent listed a country other than the United States as country of birth. Of those completing an exit survey, 96 percent reported that EXCEL strengthened their decision to study dentistry, and 97 percent would recommend that future entering BUSDM students participate in EXCEL. The EXCEL Program may serve as a model for increasing diversity in U.S. dental school enrollment.  (+info)

Occupational exposures to blood in a dental teaching environment: results of a ten-year surveillance study. (4/671)

Evaluation of occupational exposures can assist with practice modifications, redesign of equipment, and targeted educational efforts. The data presented in this report has been collected as part of a ten-year surveillance program of occupational exposures to blood or other potentially infectious materials in a large dental teaching institution. From 1987 to 1997, a total of 504 percutaneous/non-intact skin and mucous membrane exposures were documented. Of these, 494 (98 percent) were percutaneous, and 10 (2 percent) were mucosal, each involving a splash to the eye of the dental care worker (DCW). Among the 504 exposures, 414 (82.1 percent) occurred among dental students, 60 (11.9 percent) among staff, and 30 (6 percent) among faculty. One hundred ninety-one (37.9 percent) exposures were superficial (no bleeding), 260 (51.6 percent) were moderate (some bleeding), and 53 (10.5 percent) were deep (heavy bleeding). Regarding the circumstances of exposure, 279 (54.5 percent) of the injuries occurred post-operatively (after the use of the device), and most were related to instrument clean-up; 210 (41.0 percent) occurred intra-operatively (during the use of the device); and 23 (4.5 percent) occurred when a DCW collided with a sharp object in the dental operatory (eight cases involved more than one circumstance). The overall exposure rate for the college was 2.46+/-0.11 SD per 10,000 patient visits. The average rate for the student population was 4.02+/-0.20 SD per 100 person-years, with the highest rates being observed among junior year students. The observed rates of occupational exposures to blood and body fluids in this report are consistent with published reports from several other educational settings. Dental teaching institutions are faced with the unique challenge of protecting the student and patient populations against bloodborne infections. Educational efforts must go beyond mere teaching of universal precautions and should include the introduction of safer products and clinical procedures that can minimize the risks associated with the hands-on aspects of the students' learning process.  (+info)

Student operator-assistant pairs: an update. (5/671)

OBJECTIVE: To seek the opinions of undergraduates using the operator-assistant pairs system. DESIGN: A five-year evaluation of third-, fourth- and fifth-year students using a short, anonymous questionnaire OUTCOME MEASURES: This study set out to evaluate, but does not attempt to formally assess, the system. RESULT: Most students enjoyed working in pairs, citing mutual support and collaborative learning as being the main advantages. However, 67% of responding third- year students, 79% of fourth-year students and 54% of fifth-year students indicated that they did not know why paired working had been introduced. CONCLUSIONS: The majority of students found the pairs system advantageous over teacher-led situations. It encouraged greater efficiency, mutual support and help and collaborative learning.  (+info)

Teaching ethics in dental schools: trends, techniques, and targets. (6/671)

The importance of promoting ethical behavior in dental students is reflected in the emphasis on formal ethics teaching within the curricula of most dental schools. Over the last three decades, dental educators have addressed the need for ethics training and examined varied teaching approaches. Today, state-of-the-art ethics education has moved from purely didactic instruction to more interactional teaching methods that promote student introspection and group problem-solving. This paper provides an overview of trends in ethics teaching in dental schools and the current teaching approaches advocated in health science schools. In addition, future needs in dental ethics education are explored including the importance of addressing the unique aspects of the dental education environment.  (+info)

Perceptions of the importance and control of professional problems in the clinical setting. (7/671)

The objective of this study was to identify the relative importance of culturally relevant professional problems and the degree of control over them, as perceived by dentists and dental students in Mexico City, Mexico. The dentists and students ranked 13 problems according to importance and then according to the perceived degree of control over each one. Novice clinicians were less secure about their ability to cope with the legal, financial, and clinical performance problems, whereas experienced clinicians were more concerned about occupational hazards and the dental market and culture. Both reported similar perceptions of their control of the problems. This preliminary information should support introducing into dental schools relevant practice-management courses, targeting continuing education efforts, and instituting professional counseling measures to meet the challenges posed by these problems.  (+info)

Validation of an instrument to measure dental students' use of, knowledge about, and attitudes towards computers. (8/671)

Currently, no validated survey instrument exists to measure dental students' use of, knowledge about, and attitudes towards computers. Several studies have surveyed students about their knowledge and opinions regarding computers, but none of them has established the reliability and validity of the instrument(s) used. A measurement study to validate a preliminary survey for dental students was conducted. The preliminary instrument contained five scales: computer use, information resource use, computer knowledge, capabilities of computer systems, and effects of computers on dental practice. Selected variables were summarized descriptively, and a factor analysis for each scale was performed. In addition, construct validity was assessed through correlational analyses among several variables. Three hundred seventy surveys distributed to students at nine dental schools generated 156 responses (42 percent response rate). Sixty-four percent of respondents were male, 36 percent female. Respondents used computers an average approximately four hours per week, and most had begun using computers in 1991. All survey scales except computer use were unidimensional. Computer use required a two-factor solution that distinguished between clinical and nonclinical uses of computers. The instrument can be used for a demonstration study, but should be continuously refined and validated.  (+info)

This pilot and feasibility study examined the impact of a sensory adapted dental environment (SADE) to reduce distress, sensory discomfort, and perception of pain during oral prophylaxis for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Participants were 44 children ages 6-12 (n = 22 typical, n = 22 ASD). In an experimental crossover design, each participant underwent two professional dental cleanings, one in a regular dental environment (RDE) and one in a SADE, administered in a randomized and counterbalanced order 3-4 months apart. Outcomes included measures of physiological anxiety, behavioral distress, pain intensity, and sensory discomfort. Both groups exhibited decreased physiological anxiety and reported lower pain and sensory discomfort in the SADE condition compared to RDE, indicating a beneficial effect of the SADE. ...
April 3, 2012 -- TAMPA, Fla. - Community-based dental education has a positive effect on students attitudes about treating minorities and the disabled, according to a study presented March 23 at the American Association for Dental Research annual session.. Several studies have shown that minorities, children, and patients with special needs face greater challenges getting necessary dental care, the study authors noted. In addition, the number of minorities is continually increasing.. In light of these trends, researchers from the University of Michigan (UM) surveyed dental school alumni to demonstrate the impact a community-based dental program had on their education and subsequent treatment of disadvantaged patient populations.. Marita Inglehart, PhD, UM dental school professor, noted that UM dental students have always had community outreach experience, but it was not as extensive or structured as the current program, a 16-week structured program required of all fourth-year dental ...
The International Association of Dental Students (IADS) is a non-governmental organization representing interests of dental students worldwide. It was founded in August 1951 in Copenhagen, Denmark and currently has more than 200,000 students from 60 countries of six world continents. In February 1951, the national organization of French stomatology students invited some of their colleagues from other countries to attend their annual meeting in Paris, France where the Danish, Dutch and Swedish representatives proposed to establish international dental students organization. Such proposal was unanimously welcomed. A committee consisting of representatives from Denmark, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom was formed to work out the basic principles on which to build the constitution of the association. This constitution was drafted and the first executive committee was elected; Leslie Sorling from Sweden was elected the first president. Dental Students Scientific Association of Egypt ...
Dental students are often described as stressed. The stress has, among other things, been connected to stressors in their psychosocial environment and inconsistent feedback. The hypothesis of this study was that the psychosocial work environment in dental schools leads to stress and affects the satisfaction of dental students and that tolerance for ambiguity shields students from stress. A web-based survey was sent to the entire Swedish dental student population in clinical training (N=805); the response rate was 40 percent. Structural equation modeling used in the analyses contains four main constructs: psychosocial work environment, tolerance for ambiguity, perceived stress, and student satisfaction (chi(2)=267.437, d.f.=174, p,0.001, Normed chi(2)=1.537, RM-SEA=0.041, CFI=0.98). Psychosocial work environment influenced both perceived stress and satisfaction: it accounted for almost all of the explained variance in perceived stress for women, while about half of the variance for the men was ...
Introduction: New technologies in dental practice, such as laser, have enabled new strategies to be established in dental education. The aim of this study was to analyze the difficulties that dental students encountered with performing surgical incisions using Er:YAG laser (LE), and the morphology of these incisions. Material and Methods: Sixteen undergraduate dental students and ten dental professionals (DP) enrolled at The Master of Science Program in Laser Dentistry were asked to perform 15 incisions using an LE and 15 with a conventional scalpel. The incisions were compared, based on the shape factor (relation between area and perimeter), which was obtained by a digital image system and by a morphometry software. Data was submitted to statistical analysis of variance (p 0.05). Results: Considering the incisions performed by scalpel, DP showed statistically significant differences (p < 0.01) in relation to control group (CG). Considering the LE, all groups showed significant differences ( ...
The purpose of this study was to identify and evaluate the attitudes of a cohort of fourth- and fifth-year dental students (n=53) at Griffith University in Australia to a proposed computer-based Case Study and Treatment Planning (CSTP) tool. The tool would allow students to work through the process of comprehensive, multidisciplinary treatment planning for patients in a structured and logical manner. A questionnaire was designed to investigate the students perceived needs, attitudes, and factors deemed to be important in the design of such a tool. Students responded on a seven-point Likert scale ranging from 1 (strongly disagree) to 7 (strongly agree). The survey was supplemented by two focus groups, one of fourth-year and one of fifth-year students. The survey results indicated strong agreement that there is a need for such a tool (fourth-year mean=6.24; fifth-year mean=5.75) and the likelihood that it would be used after hours and for extra treatment planning practice (fourth-year mean=5.82; ...
April 19, 2012 -- Forgetfulness, negligence, working alone, and failure to use personal protective equipment are some of the reasons behind occupational exposures to infectious biological material among dental students, according to a study presented at the recent American Association for Dental Research (AADR) conference.. But students often dont report these exposures, the study authors found.. "Literature shows that professionals and dental students are reckless about reporting their occupational injuries," study author Camila Pinelli, PhD, professor of ergonomics and chairman of the Committee on Biosafety at the Araraquara School of Dentistry, told DrBicuspid.com.. Pinelli became interested in this research when she observed that, after an occupational exposure, students usually panicked and almost never knew what to do, which form to fill out, or which service to look for. However, she also noted that, by contrast, some students had no concerns about being exposed and did not report their ...
Program Description: The Dental class is a one-year program, with the option of a second year advanced class, established to provide students, both men and women, with the skills, knowledge, and attitudes required by the dental profession to work in a dental environment..

The aim of the present study was to compare self-reported dental fear among dental students and patients at a School of Dentistry in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Eighty students ranging in age from 20 to 29 years and 80 patients ranging in age from 18 to 65 years participated in the study. A self-administered pre-tested questionnaire consisting of 13 items was used for data acquisition. The city of Belo Horizonte Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) was employed for socioeconomic classification. The chi-square test and binary and multinomial logistic regression were employed in the statistical analysis, with the significance level set at 0.05. The majority of dental students (76.5%) sought the dentist for the first time for a routine exam, while patients (77.3%) mostly sought a dentist for the treatment of dental pain. Dental fear was more prevalent among the patients (72.5%) than the students (27.5%). A total of 47.1% of the students and 52.9% of the patients reported having had negative dental experiences in

From the study it was concluded that not many students were aware of the basic knowledge regarding diabetes Ketoacidosis, its clinical features and management and they were not able to answer most of the questions. This concludes that more awareness camps were required to spread awareness about Diabetic Ketoacidosis.. ...
Description: This causal-comparative and correlational study examined cross-cultural adaptability of randomly selected licensed dental hygienists, 1995-2005 graduates, practicing in the state of Texas and first and second-year dental hygiene students attending 5 randomly selected accredited 2 and 4-year dental hygiene schools in the state of Texas.

Good news dental students: soon you will no longer have to approach your first victim patient with shaky, unsure hands. Researchers at Showa University in Japan have unveiled a new dental dummy, a realistic robot for dental students to practice on before taking the drill to real, human mouths.. I use the term "dummy" here loosely. Showa Tanako 2, as the researchers call her, has a wide range of human-like features. She can engage in simple conversations, flinch, roll her eyes, cough, and close her mouth like a real patient suffering from jaw fatigue. Oh, and she has a gag reflex.. So how did a group of dental researchers build such a realistic-albeit slightly scary-looking robot? Naturally, they sought help from Japanese sex doll maker, Orient Industry, who helped fashion the robots skin, tongue, and mouth. If the dolls face didnt look realistic, it wouldnt "have the same effect on users psychologically," Showa University professor Koutaro Maki said in the video released by DigInfo. "How ...
The level of education and clinical training required to earn a dental degree, and the high academic standards of dental schools, are on par with those of medical schools, and are essential to preparing dentists for the safe and effective practice of modern oral health care.. Most dental students have earned Bachelor of Science Degrees or the equivalent, and all have passed rigorous admissions examinations.. The curricula during the first two years of dental and medical schools are essentially the same - students must complete such biomedical science courses as anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, microbiology, immunology and pathology. During the second two years, dental students coursework focuses on clinical practice - diagnosing and treating oral diseases. After earning their undergraduate and dental degrees (eight years for most) many dentists continue their education and training to achieve certification in one of nine recognized dental specialties.. Upon completing their training, dentists ...

Methods: An interactive web-based education course for the interpretation of craniofacial CBCT images was recently developed at our institution. Self-evaluation modules on correlative anatomical features were also included to support the learning process. Three e-learner groups were selected to evaluate the effectiveness of the educational modules. The three groups were (1) oral health specialists (OHSs) (comprising periodontologists, prosthodontists, orthodontists and maxillofacial surgeons); (2) third grade (DS3) and (3) first grade (DS1) undergraduate dental students. The assessment modules that were part of the interactive web-course content were administered after delivery of the course material. In addition, each group received a computer affinity questionnaire to quantify the extent of knowledge about computers and a perception questionnaire to assess their attitudes toward the web-course ...

When you have a bad day at the office, its fairly reasonable to want to get as far away from your line of work as is humanly possible.

As a dentist have you ever asked yourself- Am I primarily "mechanically minded" or do I fall in to the classification of those who could be called "medically minded"? Strange to say, your answer to this question will determine to a large degree your likelihood of making a success in the field of nutrition. It is true that there is a small percentage of persons who seem to possess both characteristics to a high degree, but the great majority have a quality of mind that causes them to lean strongly in one direction or the other as to our question.. As a teacher for fifteen years in one of our dental colleges, I have always been interested in this inborn difference in dental students. It is important for every dentist who contemplates doing nutritional work to evaluate himself and to ask himself the following questions. Am I primarily mechanically minded? Do I derive my greatest pleasure in my mechanical skill or am I medically minded and prefer to treat pyorrhea and Vincents infection cases? If ...

Go from "Practicing" to Providing the Right Solution.. Shawn and I became friends when we were children and we had the good fortune of staying friends into adulthood. When I was in dental school, Shawn mentioned that someday he would like me to look at some problems he was having with his teeth. The operative word, I might add, was "someday." As an eager dental student, I encouraged Shawn to come in right away so I could resolve his issues immediately. "Why wait? Lets do this now!" I said. However, Shawn was cautious. He didnt want me to "practice" on him while I was still a student, but he said he would definitely come in for a visit once a diploma hung on my wall. That truly was a brilliant move on Shawns part because the dentistry that Shawn really needed-and that I was finally able to complete for him-was definitely not the type of dentistry that I could do while still in school.. Shawns First Visit. After graduation from dental school, I began my career at a corporate office. After a ...

Objective: Identify areas of potential contamination of dental curing lights in a dental school clinical environment in order to optimize disinfection protocols. Method: Specific curing lights (LE Demetron, Kerr) used in dental student clinics were disinfected prior to clinical use. Specific locations of each curing light were swabbed using a sterile cotton tip, and immediately streaked onto blood agar plates. Samples were taken from seven areas on 20 light units: tip, light guide shank, blue-blocker shield, air vents, activation button, unit body, and the battery sides and end. The eighth was the negative control (sterile swab). Biologic growth in these areas represented control values for comparison to samples taken after the lights were used clinically. Students were not informed of the testing. Proper clinical procedure dictated that the student cleaned all surfaces of the curing light with a liquid, cold disinfectant (Dispatch, Clorox) between patients. At the end of the day, the same ...
Downloadable! This paper sheds light on the role of student motivation in the success of schooling. We develop a model in which a teacher engages in the management of student motivation through the choice of the classroom environment. We show that the teacher is able to motivate high-ability students, at least in the short run, by designing a competitive environment. For students with low ability, risk aversion, or when engaged in a long term relationship, the teacher designs a classroom environment that is more focused on mastery and self-referenced standards. In doing so, the teacher helps to develop the intrinsic motivation of students and their capacity to overcome failures.

Abstract:. Background: Researchers have described empathy as a cognitive attribute, which means it predominantly involves understanding another persons concerns. It has also been described as an affective or emotional characteristic, which implies that it primarily involves feeling another persons pain and suffering. Because empathic patient interactions by dentists are associated with improved patient outcomes, self-reported declines in empathy during dental student training are a concern.. Aim: To measure empathy levels among 3rd year, 4th year undergraduate students and interns studying in dental colleges of Bangalore city and to investigate the differences in empathy scores based on gender and year of dental training.. Methodology: A cross sectional descriptive research was undertaken among 800 dental students (3rd year, final year and interns) to measure the empathy levels using Jefferson Scale of Physician Empathy-Health Professionals Version (JSPE-HP) questionnaire containing 20 items ...

In CERPs annual survey of undergraduate students in computing fields, students were asked to identify the resources they are using to fund their education. They could select multiple resources. This graphic shows the distribution of responses for first-generation versus continuing-generation college students. The percentages are the number of students who selected a particular funding source out of the number of students within each group (total first-generation students = 1,076; continuing-generation students = 7,157). While first-generation students most frequent source of education funding comes from federal loans, continuing-generation students rely most frequently on financial support from their parents. The data also show that first-generation and continuing-generation students take out private loans, make use of their personal savings, receive scholarships and/or grants, work part- or full-time, and are supported by their spouse or partner at similar rates.. ...
DENTAL CARE FOR CHILDREN wrote - Join Team Dental Care for Children (DCFC) and help give children in Southern California, Haiti and Mexico the gift of a healthy smile! There are countless organizations in the underdeveloped world that take care of basic health, education, clean water and so forth, and without doubt they are needed. But there are few organizations that take care of the other most basic need of underprivileged kids - their teeth. Pain, decay and infections all combine to make a childs life uncomfortable at best, unbearable at worst. Today, Dental Care for Children is the most successful 501(c)3 organization filling this crucial need. Dental Care for Children puts on free dental clinics in Southern California, Haiti and Mexico for children in these impoverished areas who cant afford dental care. With the help of local volunteers, dentists and dental students we make about 12 service trips a year to these locations to restore the smiles and hope of these children. By joining

According to the American Dental Education Association (ADEA), the average educational debt per graduating dental school senior in 2016 was roughly $219,000. Factoring out the 16 percent of dental school seniors who graduate with no debt, the average student debt rises to $262,000.. With dental school tuition nearly doubling since 2000, new dentists are faced with staggering amounts of debt after graduation, which can limit their ability to choose a preferred career path. In addition, with the passage of the Budget Control Act of 2011, graduate students lost access to federally subsidized loans. Under this program, the federal government pays the interest while students are in school, during a grace period and during periods of deferment. The loss of this benefit has increased the debt burden on graduate and professional students, including dental students.. Most dental students rely on federal student loans to finance their dental education. ADEA reports that in 2016, nearly 70 percent of ...
