Assessment of Knowledge, Attitude, and Practice of Minimal Intervention Dentistry in a Group of Dental Interns

2017-05-09 13:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Minimal intervention dentistry (MID) is a modern medical approach that aims to maximize preservation of healthy dental tissues. When operative intervention is required it is as minimally invasive as possible. This study will assess the knowledge of a group of dental interns regarding minimal intervention dentistry in Egypt and whether this knowledge is translated into positive attitude and practice among them.

Description

Healthy oral tissues enable the child to eat, speak and socialize which contributes to general wellbeing. Dental caries during childhood is a major public health problem and throughout the 20th century, the dominant practice patterns of managing dental caries relied on the purely surgical approach of G.V Black such as the concept of "extension for prevention". One of the drawbacks of this approach is an unnecessary removal of healthy oral tissues.

Comprehensive knowledge of dental cariology, advances in dental restorative materials and modern diagnostic devices are changing pediatric restorative dentistry.

minimal intervention dentistry (MID) is a modern medical approach that aims to maximize preservation of healthy dental tissues based on individualized patient care of early detection of disease, risk assessment diagnosis, and prevention. When operative intervention is required it is as minimally invasive as possible.

There is insufficient information about knowledge and practice of modern dental approaches including minimal intervention dentistry among dental interns in Egypt. Available studies concerned with this subject were not done in Egypt.

Due to this shortage of information, the application of MID in the Egyptian society cannot be fully assessed, and problems associated with its practice cannot be identified and solved. This shortage of information may also deprive children of getting benefits of MID.

Thus; this study will assess the knowledge of a group of dental interns regarding minimal intervention dentistry in Egypt, and whether this knowledge is translated into positive attitude and practice among them.

Knowledge, attitude, and practice (KAP) surveys can be used to identify knowledge gaps and culturally related misconceptions of new health approaches or interventions. They can determine factors influencing behaviors that are not known, and how and why people practice certain health behaviors.

KAP surveys can be also used to identify needs, problems and barriers, as well as solutions for improving quality and accessibility of health services by studying factors and possible determinants influencing treatment decisions.

This study aims to identify deficiencies (if present) in knowledge, attitude, and practice of MID among a group of dental interns in Egypt.
