Example Of Pediatric Dentistry Research Paper
According to Halany, Al-Fadba, Al-Saeed, and Al-Homaited, (2014), dentistry is growing globally as the need for dental care increased with a revolution in the dental services of the children. Parents are regularly getting involved in the delivery of the dental care and entering into consent as a standard health care protocol. A report indicating that dental caries among children has not decreased for the past ten years in America spurred a new interest among the American professionals. New technologies have not made dental services reach all the children with most of the dental professionals willfully accepting to treat children including those with special needs. Some of the dentist contends that they had received enough education that would enable them offer the special needs services while others felt that they had inadequate knowledge.
A study conducted in Sweden showed that individuals with disability faced barriers of accessing dental services due to inadequate knowledge, time, experience, as wells constraints of their work environment and stress. In UK, dental services to children are provided by the general dental practitioners (GDP). The experience of the GDP is helpful in the approach of children care. As it was found in Nigeria, few dentists had the capacity to handle special needs cases of dental care. Those with more experience felt that they had adequate knowledge. Most of the dentists in Saudi Arabia are willing to offer special needs dentist services to children even though it’s challenging. However, the attitudes behavior management in pediatric dentistry including those of special needs have not been investigated in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, this investigation analyses the attitudes and willingness, barriers, and concerns, and the influence of undergraduate training in the practice of pediatric dentistry in Saudi Arabia.
