Unmet need for education by professionals and inconsistency in knowledge and behavior of dental patients.
N Y State Dent J. 2010 Apr; 76(3):16-21.NY

Abstract

In order to identify what knowledge dental patients have of oral health and to analyze the potential relationship between knowledge, behavior and oral health status, 250 randomly selected patients were asked to complete a self-administered questionnaire. Responses were analyzed based on the age, gender and educational status of participants. It was determined that oral health-related behavior and knowledge were generally inadequate. Although knowledge had some influence on behavior, this was not constantly observed. The unmet need of patients with regard to getting information from professional resources emphasizes the need for dental professionals to dedicate more time to prevention and the promotion of oral health through efficient strategies.
