The impact of a continuing education oral health program on providing services for young children by dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants. - Journal of dental hygiene : JDH / American Dental Hygienists' Association
The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of a 4 hour continuing education (CE) program on the oral health knowledge and behaviors of dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants in providing oral health services to young children in West Virginia general dental practices.A free CE program was provided for 92 general dentists, 123 dental hygienists and 37 dental assistants (n=252) at 4 sites across West Virginia. Participants completed a pre- and post-test on topics including the timing of the first dental exam, fluorides, xylitol, Alternative Restorative Technique (ART) and their practice pattern of caring for children under 3 years old. A 6 month follow-up questionnaire was mailed to participants to assess outcomes.Participants showed a 22% increase in knowledge from the pre-test to the post-test (p<0.001) for all questions except for ART, which showed no change. The majority of dentists and hygienists (89%) increased their comfort in providing services for children under 3 years old. Participants (80%) stated they would increase the number of children under 3 years old they examine, yet 6 months after the program only 42% responded affirmatively (p<0.001). At the time of the program, 62% reported that they currently examine children at 1 year of age, and there was no significant change 6 months later. While 54% responded that they would contact their local physicians about early oral health care, only 27% followed through.This program significantly increased the participants' knowledge and comfort level for providing infant and toddler oral health care. However, it did not motivate most to alter their practice behaviors to conform to national best practice guidelines.
Survey of treatment provided for young children by West Virginia general dentists. - Pediatric dentistry
The purpose of this study was to survey the treatment provided by West Virginia general dentists (GDs) for young children.A survey was mailed to 683 GDs in West Virginia. Respondents were questioned about their referrals to pediatric dentists, the youngest age for which they perform specific procedures, conscious sedation utilization, and whether they treat Medicaid-covered children.The response rate was 72%. Half of the GDs responded that they frequently referred children younger than 3 years old, and only one third reported performing dental examinations on a child 2 years old or younger. All responding GDs performed the surveyed procedures in 5-year-olds, but fewer respondents performed complex procedures for children < or = 2 years old. More than half of the GDs responded that they frequently had difficulty with referrals to a pediatric dentist due to distance/ transportation or not accepting new Medicaid patients. Medicaid-covered children were not treated by 25% of general dentists.Most GDs in West Virginia treat older children, but care is limited for children < or = 2 years old. Further studies are needed to uncover the specifics of these findings to improve the access and care for young West Virginia children.
