International preventative care survey

An international research project has asked primary care dentists in the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands to answer two short questionnaires, which have been developed as part of the EU-funded Added Value for Oral Healthcare (ADVOCATE) project that aims to encourage a preventative approach in dentistry.

The Faculty of General Dental Practice (FGDP(UK)) is one organisation supporting the research by encouraging dentists to participate in the surveys, which can be found on its website. An attitudes questionnaire aims to capture dentists’ beliefs and experiences around delivering preventative care to adult patients; a preferences questionnaire asks dentists to consider clinical scenarios where photographs and radiographs of patients of a given age and caries risk level are presented.
