How personal protective equipment affects perceptions of dentists



How personal protective equipment affects perceptions of dentists



Journal of the American Dental Association 124(10): 82



In this study, 248 college-educated young adults completed the Dental Fears Survey. Subjects then viewed one of two slides of a dentist. In one slide, the dentist wore no PPE at all; in the other, the dentist wore gloves, mask, glasses, face shield and lab coat. Subjects completed a 20-item semantic differential scale to assess their attitudes toward the dentist portrayed in the slide they saw.
