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 ( ...
Background: Depression is a common mental health problem which affects all strata of life. As a result of the increase in competitiveness, there is a need to pay attention toward the presence and level of depression among students. Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the depressive symptoms and its associated factors among clinical dental students in Bengaluru city. Settings and Design: A cross-sectional study was conducted among third and final years dental students (n = 200) randomly selected from four dental colleges in Bengaluru city. Materials and Methods: A self-administered questionnaire was used to assess depressive symptoms using Becks Depression Inventory. Statistical Analysis Used: Association of depression with non-academic and academic factors was assessed using the Chi-square test. Students t-test was used to compare mean depression scores among study years. P | 0.05 was considered as significant. Results: The prevalence of depression was found to be 49%. Significantly higher

Dental students at the University of Leeds Dental Institute will be the first in the UK to cut their teeth on new simulation technology, allowing them to hone their drilling skills on virtual patients.
This study evaluated a pilot workshop for teaching communication skills to dental students. The methodology is based on an experiential learning approach, the use of realistic clinical scenarios, simulated patients, and an integrated teaching team of both educational researchers and dentists. Furthermore, the methodology was adapted for short workshops, which is thought to offer better possibilities for frequent and effective training of communication skills throughout the curriculum. The workshop was piloted with groups of six to ten students from the sixth and tenth semesters (n=94). Results show that the majority of students found the tasks meaningful and well aligned with how they perceived their future profession as dentists. Most students also thought that they learned from the task. An interesting finding is that students not only found it instructive to practice how to communicate in authentic situations, but that they generally found the workshop to be thought-provoking while at the ...

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

Background: Formative assessment with its feedback component has a powerful effect on students learning. Aim: This research aimed to appraise how teaching and assessment practices were organised in dental undergraduate teaching institutions to inform the development and piloting of a novel peer-assessment protocol for undergraduate dental students pre-clinical competence and clinical performance. Subsequently, the protocols utility as a framework for immediate dialogic peer-feedback to boost students academic learning and achievement outcomes as well as their reflective skills, was evaluated. Materials and methods: An initial review of the literature on peer-assessment together with a scrutiny of the Kings College London Dental Institute undergraduate curriculum and assessment practices of 39 selected international dental teaching institutions was undertaken. This underpinned the development of a novel longitudinal, formative and structured peer-assessment protocol based on traditional ...
The main objective of this present study was taken to determine the knowledge and awareness on diabetic Ketoacidosis among the dental students. This study was a cross-sectional Questionnaire based observational study conducted among dental students from various universities in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. It was carried out in December 2016. Study instrument was a self developed, pre-validated, semi-structured questionnaire which consisted of 10 questions and distributed among participants which had both undergraduates and postgraduates, 101 in number between the among group of 18-45. 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. A sample of 289 individuals: 194 enrolled students and 95 licensed dental hygienists, alumni of the 5 schools, completed the 50-item Cross-Cultural Adaptability Inventory (CCAI ®) and a brief demographic survey. The purpose of this study was to determine if statistically significant differences existed among and between licensed dental hygienists and first and second-year dental hygiene students in the state of Texas on a cross-cultural adaptability measure. The study also examined relationships among and between cross-cultural adaptability scores, as measured by the CCAI, and several independent variables. The data were analyzed by using the ...
First, we now understand the importance of developing rapport with research participants; therefore, we plan to perform a separate consent and baseline assessment visit in the home setting before the first dental visit. However, although these home visits were helpful in increasing research quality, because of costs home visits may not be a practical strategy to enhance clinical care. Second, the inclusion of Spanish-speaking personnel to ensure parental understanding of the consent process and overall study was critical; it was not needed in the dental clinic because the clinic in which we conducted the study had a large Spanish-speaking population, and bilingual dental staff were part of the team. Third, we plan to reexamine the coding system for the videotaped dental visits. The goal will be to more clearly separate the behaviors that interrupted dental treatment (e.g., screaming, biting) from those that indicated mild patient distress (e.g., grimacing), and identify those that best ...
L-PRF technique is very simple, it acts as a fibrin membrane that accelerates wound healing and provides a significant postoperative protection.[14] It has the advantages of incorporating platelets, leukocytes, cytokines, and circulating stem cells.[15] Cytokines, growth factors such as transforming growth factor-β1 (TGFβ-1), platelet-derived growth factor-AB (PDGF-AB), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and matrix glycoproteins (such as thrombospondin-1) are released over a period of 7 to 11 days, during remodeling of fibrin matrix.[16] L-PRF has been used in periodontal surgery widely to treat gingival recessions and intrabody defects. Several studies compared the use of PRF with other different treatment options. The results showed that PRF enhances GTH and keratinized tissue.[17],[18] A systematic review[19] has been conducted to evaluate the use of PRF in periodontal therapy; it included 49 articles (14 in vitro, 2 animals, 33 clinical studies) and resulted that PRF is considered ...

In this study, we examined the degree of grit and core competency in a group of dental hygiene students and confirmed which factors affected core competency.. The mean score of grit in dental hygiene students who participated in this study was 2.85±0.40. This was lower than the 3.31 points seen in a previous study, using the same tool, on the effect of grit and stress on college life adaptation in third and fourth grade nursing students21). It was also lower than the 3.12 points seen in a study on the effect that grit had on turnover intention in university hospital nurses26). It is difficult to compare the results because there have been no prior studies conducted on dental hygiene students. However, the participants in these studies were 3rd grade, 4th grade, or clinical nurses, which may lower the results. I think these results differ because second-grade students who have not yet experienced clinical practice were included.. Among the sub-factors of grit, the consistency of interest ...

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 ...

The Evans Dental Institute, today known as the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, was founded in 1878 as the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery. After merging with the University of Pennsylvania in 1909, Thomas W. Evans, a prominent dentist to European nobility including Napoleon III, left the school a generous sum of money to construct what would be, at the time, the best equipped dental building in the United States. The Stomatological Society was a professional organization based within the school, active during the middle of the twentieth century, that served to further the knowledge and interests of dentists and dental students. ...

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..

New Dentist Now, a blog featuring resources for new dentists and dental students, launched a new weekly series on finance from Darien Rowayton Bank.
Articles were electronically scanned and presented to raters in a neutral layout. Each article referring to one of the selected drugs was evaluated for the strength of its recommendation for or against the use of the drug. The evaluations were done using an ordinal five-item scale ranging from −2 to +2. A positive integer indicated a strong or moderate recommendation for use of the drug, a score of zero indicated a neutral statement, and a negative integer indicated a moderate or strong recommendation against use of the drug. The evaluation was conducted by two dental students who had been trained to use the rating system and who were blind to the selected journals (interrater reliability, Cohens κ = 0.73). Ratings followed a standardized procedure and were based on the content and titles of the articles, as well as on the way in which the authors worded their recommendations for or against the use of the selected drugs.. We compared the strength of recommendations across classes of journal ...

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 ...
Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicines decision to suspend the grades of its entire 2010 class of 52 students just after their final exams follows similar, recent actions at other American dental schools.The SIU dental school, based in Alton, is not divulging details behind the suspensions. But an anonymous letter sent to local media, apparently written by a dental student, refers to unfair allegations of academic misconduct and cheating.
This past spring, Brian Lehigh, Class of 2016, won the prestigious Charles E. Young Humanitarian Award for his work with homeless and impoverished military veterans. The pre-doctoral student spearheaded a program that offers veterans instruction on proper oral hygiene, information on low-cost dental clinics, and free dental hygiene supplies. He also partnered with a transitional housing and substance abuse program called New Directions for Veterans and developed a series of oral health lectures to be given by UCLA dental students to the at-risk veterans in the program. He even recruited other dental students to volunteer their time serving the unmet dental health needs of veterans, and made it possible for them to receive credits towards graduation for volunteering their time.. Brians desire to help veterans did not stop with the New Directions program; he is currently in the process of establishing a program for UCLA undergraduate and graduate student veterans to receive subsidies for ...

Medals4Mettle (M4M) is an international organization in which distance athletes honor critically ill individuals by donating race medals to the patients in recognition of the patients grit and determination in the face of life-threatening disease. The UofL School of Medicine M4M program is unique in that the students have the opportunity to meet with their buddies prior to the race and personally present their medals to them after running. Many of the students run for the same child for several years and become friends with the patients and their families. The UofL Medals4Mettle program not only benefits the patients, but helps the students develop a sense of empathy and compassion for the patients and their families, a critical ...
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.. ...
Nursing education needs to prepare students for care of dying patients. The aim of this study was to describe the development of nursing students attitudes toward caring for dying patients and their perceived preparedness to perform end-of-life care. A longitudinal study was performed with 117 nursing students at six universities in Sweden. The students completed the Frommelt Attitude Toward Care of the Dying Scale (FATCOD) questionnaire at the beginning of first and second year, and at the end of third year of education. After education, the students completed questions about how prepared they felt by to perform end-of-life care. The total FATCOD increased from 126 to 132 during education. Five weeks theoretical palliative care education significantly predicted positive changes in attitudes toward caring for dying patients. Students with five weeks theoretical palliative care training felt more prepared and supported by the education to care for a dying patient than students with shorter ...
Disability insurance is something most dental students, including myself, are not overly concerned about. We have been told that our profession relies on a healthy neck, back, hands, and eyes. But, those horror stories of dentists injuring their backs and being forced into early retirement would never happen to you, right? Personally, I have had my fair share of close calls, but that does not mean I will opt to sit out on the next winter ski trip or fall softball league just to avoid a potential accident. I enjoy seeking lifes thrills, and minor accidents hadnt ever stopped me, until two weeks ago. A minor car accident left me with a broken right wrist, surgery to place pins in my scaphoid, and eight to ten weeks in a cast. In many ways, the accident was lucky. No one was further injured, the break was on my non-dominant hand, and I am only a dental student, meaning there is no major financial loss that practicing dentists would experience. I could steer this conversation towards the ...

As recommended by the National Council on Disability (NCD), all U.S. dental schools must now revamp their curricula and training programs to be inclusive of patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD). The Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) recently passed votes requiring dental schools to now train their students in managing treatment of patients with ID/DD. Previously, patients with ID/DD were largely unable to obtain dental care treatment because dental students were simply not required […]. ...
how students describe themselves with respect to certain demographics such as race and family income. Completed surveys are returned to the College Board for processing, and reports and an analyzable datafile are returned to the participating institution.. FINDINGS. Admitted Students Questionnaire 2000. In June 2000, the University of Washington (UW) Office of Admissions sent the ASQ to approximately 1,000 students to whom offers of admission had been made for the 2000-2001 academic year. The sample was evenly divided between students who subsequently chose to enroll at the UW and those who did not. The datafile returned to the UW by The College Board was further analyzed by the Office of Educational Assessment (OEA) with respect to responses of under-represented minorities.. Analysis of the ASQ data indicated that the UW does not enroll the highest performing minority students. Minority students who chose to attend other institutions had higher SAT scores and self-reported high school grades ...

There's an interesting discussion forming around this entry in the Mortarboard blog, which tracks education trends in the UK. In the post, James Wignall argues against the recommendations of a report about improving student behavior and attendance. The report suggests that one way to combat bullying is to provide a separate space for shy students, such as quiet study rooms, indoor games rooms and separate playground areas for calm and boisterous activities. Wignall argues that separating students this way only exacerbates the differences between shy and outgoing children, providing even more fodder for bullying and ostracism. However, this commenter, drawing...
