Objectives. As an oral health provider, a dentist is an oral health expert in any local community. This study was done to provide robust data to educate and promote the water fluoridation program in an efficient way by surveying dentists` attitudes and perceptions in Jeollabuk-do Province towards this program. Methods. The survey result was analyzed based on the responses from a total of 137 dental practitioners out of 412 dental practitioners in Jeollabuk-do Province. Results. In terms of the perception towards the water fluoridation program, the highest percentage (79.1%) of respondents agreed to post the program promotion materials inside their clinics. Furthermore, the study showed that the more active they were in preventive affairs, the more they were interested in the water fluoridation program and showed less negative views toward the program`s prospects. Also, 57.5% of the respondents (the highest ratio) agreed that the government should contribute more towards increasing the program budget as a method of expanding the program. Conclusions. We stress that instructions about the purpose and safety of the water fluoridation program and the effect of caries prevention be reinforced for dentists and all other specialists in the program.
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to examine verbal oral health literacy and its influencing factors among adults. Methods: The subjects in this study included 760 adults who were selected by convenience sampling from the residents in the cities of Iksan and Jeonju. The data were collected from a self-reported questionnaire survey and interview. Results: As a result of testing the verbal oral health literacy of adults, 63.7 percent of subjects were deemed to be at a seventh or eighth grade level and 29.1 percent were at a fourth to sixth grade level according to the REALM. The dental term that was the most elusive for the adults was ``eruption``, followed by ``apicoectomy``, ``cavity``, ``inlay`` and ``fistula``. Verbal oral health literacy was related to education level, gender, and family income. Conclusions: The level of oral health literacy was low in many adults. Therefore, easy language should be used as much as possible when oral health education materials are prepared. Furthermore, the development of effective oral health education programs is urgently required in order to improve the oral health literacy of adults.
Objectives: The present study aimed to examine the perceptions and behaviors of dentists regardingthe National Dental Health Insurance, and their opinions for improving its policies. Methods: A self-report survey was conducted with 1,321 dentists selected from the Alumni Associationof the W University College of Dentistry. We finally recovered and analyzed 243 questionnaires, excludingthose returned with insincere answers. Results: Only 40.3% of the practitioners recorded the disease name, 12.8% of medical records wereunrecorded, and 54.5% of the respondents did not receive the expenses borne by the principal. In addition,14.0% of the practitioners had administrative dispositions or had been penalized with surcharge,and 74.6% of the respondents stated that dental care benefits should be expanded. Further, 92.2% ofthe respondents agreed that a course on dental health insurance should be offered at the university. Additionally, 80.6% of the participants stated that they were willing to participate in supplementary trainingprograms that emphasize on dental health insurance. If supplementary training programs were totake place, 46.0% of the participants reported that they preferred courses that focused on dental healthinsurance in general, and 22.2% reported that they should focus on the decrease in health insurance. Finally, participants reported that insurance claims for each department had reduced for periodontaltreatment (70.7%), other treatments (15.7%), and endodontic treatment (9.6%). Conclusions: It is necessary for dental practitioners to be educated on the National Health Insurance, ingeneral, as well as on insurance claims.
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to examine the functional oral health literacy and its influencing factors among adults. Methods: The subjects were 760 adults living in the cities of Iksan and Jeonju. A survey was conducted among 18-59-year-olds. Adults who were 60 years of age or older were also selected by convenience sampling and interviewed. Results: In total, 36 percent of the adults tested on functional oral health literacy scored a seven or less on our survey, indicating that their functional oral health literacy was inadequate. Functional oral health literacy was related to age, educational level (especially, low levels of math) and family income. Conclusions: Many adults have poor functional oral health literacy. Therefore, improvement programs for oral health literacy for adults need to be developed, taking into account their social characteristics.
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of oral health literacy on oral healthrelatedquality of life (OHRQoL). Methods: Self-administered questionnaires were handed out to 760 adults above the age of 18 selectedthrough convenience sampling. Among them, those above 60 years of age were also interviewedface-to-face. The Rapid Estimate of Adult Literacy in Dentistry (REALD-99) and the Test of FunctionalHealth Literacy in Dentistry (TOFHLiD) were used to measure verbal and functional oral health literacyrespectively. OHRQoL was measured using the oral health impact profile-14 (OHIP-14), a simplified versionof the oral health impact profile (OHIP). The sociodemographic characteristics (gender, age, maritalstatus, education level, and income) were also recorded. Higher scores on oral health literacy representedhigher levels of literacy, while higher OHIP-14 scores implied that the OHRQoL was lower. Results: During analyses, the sample was stratified into the top and bottom 25% based on functionaloral health literacy levels. OHRQoL had a statistically significant negative correlation with functionaloral health literacy. The items on functional limitation, physical disability, social disability, and handicapspecifically showed negative correlations. Multiple regression analysis was performed after includingsociodemograhic variables also. Only functional and not verbal oral health literacy had a statisticallysignificant influence on OHRQoL. The higher the functional oral health literacy level, the higher was theOHRQoL. Conclusions: Enhancement of functional oral health literacy level through oral health education is necessaryto improve the OHRQoL.
Objectives. The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between locus of control (LOC) and oral health promoting behavior of dental college students. Methods. A cross-sectional study design was used, in which a survey was carried out on 144 dental college students attending W University in Iksan. The locus of control was measured by using the scale of Rotter. The items of oral health promoting behavior (OHPB) were measured by the 4-points Likert scale. Results. There was positive correlation between OHPB scores and LOC (p=0.013). When the LOC points of dental college students were higher, interest in self oral health status appeared to be higher. Also, they seemed to think that school oral examination was efficient for dental disease prevention. In addition, those who had higher LOC points were more likely to brush their teeth before sleep and less likely to eat snacks. The LOC showed statistically significant correlation with the time lag from recent dental treatment. The LOC scores of dental college students were different depending on the grade. Conclusions. The stronger internal LOC was related to better oral health promoting behavior for dental college students.
