  1. The dentist's attitudes and their interaction with patient involvement in oral hygiene compliance.

    Article - En anglais

    The influence on patient compliance of the dentist's attitudes to his or her job and to his or her patient was studied in a sample of 82 patients.

    The dentist's attitudes were assessed at the beginning of dental treatment.

    Treatment consisted of cleaning, depuration and motivation.

    At follow-up examination after six months, attendance at follow-up and the development of plaque, calculus and gingivitis were significantly predicted by the dentist's attitudes, A causal model, which also included factors of patient involvement, was developed.

    The compliance-producing factors were, primarily, the establishment of sympathy and an informal relationship between dentist and patient.

    The patient's habit of regularly making visits to a dentist, in a complex way, also contributed to compliance.
