Dentists' Attitudes toward and Knowledge of the Elderly.
Kiyak, H. Asuman; And Others
Journal of Dental Education, v46 n5 p266-73 May 1982
A survey of Washington State dentists in private practice shows generally inaccurate perceptions of the aging process. More experienced dentists held fewer stereotypes, those rating elderly patients as having good oral hygiene held positive stereotypes, and geriatrics coursework did not affect stereotypes. Implications for training and geriatric dentistry are discussed. (Author/MSE)
