Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To assess the dentists' opinion on their (under)graduate dental education.

DESIGN:

Descriptive survey, questionnaire.

SETTING:

Academic Centre for Dentistry Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

METHODS:

432 dentists who were graduated from the Academic Centre for Dentistry Amsterdam between 1989-1997, were asked to give their opinion on their dental education.

RESULTS:

From all graduates 43.1% thought the treatment of patients as practiced during their training didn't correspond with the treatment of patients in their present practice. However 75.9% of the respondents thought they had gained enough experience during their dental education to enable them to work as a general practitioner.

CONCLUSION:

The results show that most respondents were content with the received dental education. The results correspond largely with the results found in a similar survey done in 1990.
