Study: Female dentists focus more on prevention

from JADA

In this study, the authors surveyed general dentists who were members of The Dental Practice-Based Research Network and who practiced within the United States. The survey included questions about dentists', practices' and patients' characteristics, as well as prevention, assessment and treatment of dental caries. The authors adjusted the statistical models for differences in years since dental school graduation, practice model, full-time versus part-time status, and practice owner or employee status before making conclusions about sex differences. Three hundred ninety-three male and 73 female dentists participated. Female dentists recommended at-home fluoride to a significantly larger number of their patients than did male dentists. Female dentists also chose to use preventive therapy more often at earlier stages of dental caries. more
