The effect of instruction on dentists' motivation to manage fearful patients.
J Dent Educ. 1993 Jun; 57(6):444-8.JD

Abstract

This study assesses the effect of the pre-doctoral and continuing behavioral education on dentists' efforts to treat fearful patients. A mail survey consisting of a booklet of 27 questions was sent to the 1988 and 1989 graduates of the Universities of Washington (UW), Kentucky (UK), and British Columbia (UBC). Graduates from UW and UK who received predoctoral instruction and some UBC graduates who received continuing education on the behavioral approach to caring for fearful patients were compared with UBC graduates who received only a primarily pharmacological oriented education. The overall response rate was 80.4 percent (164/204). Results indicate the average proportion of fearful patients seen was greater for those receiving behavioral instruction. Dentists who received behavioral instruction also reported greater effort addressing fear during patient's initial contact with the practice; however, they perceived the costs of the behavioral approach to be greater. No differences were found between groups for the remaining effort measures.
