Incorporating Experiential Learning Techniques to Improve Self-Efficacy in Clinical Special Care Dentistry Education

Watters, Amber L; Stabulas-Savage, Jeanine; Toppin, James D; Janal, Malvin N; Robbins, Miriam R
The New York University College of Dentistry has introduced a clinical rotation for fourth-year dental students that focuses on treating people with special health care needs (PSN). The aim of this study was to investigate the hypothesis that clinical experience in treating patients with special health care needs during predoctoral education is associated with increased self-assessed student ability and comfort and therefore self-efficacy. The study also investigated whether other characteristics, such as prior personal or volunteer experience with this population, service-mindedness, and/or the inclination to treat underserved populations, were associated with comfort in treating PSN. A survey was used to assess changes in students' perceived knowledge, beliefs, and attitudes regarding treating PSN before and after the clinical experience for July 2012-June 2013. The survey included questions about students' service-mindedness, comfort, perceptions of abilities of PSN and educational importance of learning to treat PSN, desire for clinical experience, and future intent or interest in treating PSN. Out of 364 students invited to participate, 127 surveys were returned, for a response rate of 34.9%. The results showed statistically significant increases on six items following training: impressions about the importance of oral health among PSN, comfort in treating people with cognitive disabilities and with medical complexities, intent to treat PSN in future practice, interest in including PSN in postgraduate training, and belief that PSN could be treated in the private practice setting. These students reported preferring to learn in the clinical setting over didactic instruction. This clinical experience was associated with improved self-efficacy in treating PSN and increased intentions to treat this population in future practice. Improvements were particularly evident among those with the least prior experience with PSN and were independent of other aspects of the students' past experience, future goals, or personality characteristics.

Optimising radiographic bitewing examination to adult and juvenile patients through the use of anthropomorphic phantoms

Dauer, Lawrence T; Branets, Iryna; Stabulas-Savage, Jeanine; Quinn, Brian; Miodownik, Daniel; Dauer, Zachary L; Colosi, Dan; Hershkowitz, David; Goren, Arthur
Four anthropomorphic phantoms (an adult male, an adult female, a 10-y-old child and a 5-y-old child) were exposed to bitewing radiographs at film and digital settings using both rectangular and round collimation. Optically stimulated dosemeters were used. For children, average organ doses were <40 microGy and the organs with the highest doses were the salivary glands, parotid, oral mucosa, skin and extrathoracic airway. For adults, average organ doses were <200 microGy. Highest adult doses were to the salivary glands, oral mucosa and skin. Effective doses ranged from 1.5 to 1.8 microSv for children and from 2.6 to 3.6 microSv for adults when optimised technique factors were employed, including digital receptors, rectangular collimation, size-appropriate exposure times and proper clinical judgment. Optimised doses were a fraction of the natural daily background exposure. Therefore, predictions of hypothetical cancer incidence or detriment in patient populations exposed to such low doses are highly speculative and should be discouraged.

A sign of the times: contemporary dental imaging artifacts

Frommer, Herbert H; Stabulas-Savage, Jeanine J
There have been new findings evident in dental imaging that reflect changes in society over time. Although we may interpret these findings as 'artifacts,' they could simply be images that we cannot readily identify. The following article is presented to notify dental professionals of the presence of these images, which are truly 'signs of the times,' and to assist clinicians in recognizing these images in dental radiography

Guest editorial. Vertical bitewings: the other option [Editorial]

Stabulas JJ
Conventionally, bitewing radiographs are exposed with the film positioned horizontally in the posterior areas of the oral cavity. Yet, in order to extend the vertical coverage of the interdental alveolar bone and roots, the bitewing film may be positioned vertically. Vertical bitewing radiographs are especially useful in examining root caries and advanced bone loss
