Abstract


Study Aims: To determine the degree of acceptance of a treatment plan by the dental patients in REU clinics. To determine the factors associated with the failure of acceptance of the treatment plan. Materials and methods: This is a cross-sectional study, conducted in the clinics of the REU Muneseya campus. A convenient sampling technique was utilized and 500 patients along with 250 dental students took part in this study. 2 surveys were designed using Google forms and participants were asked to fill them by using i-pads and mobile phones. Results: A total of 581 participants took part in this study. These include 71% males and 29% females (figure 1). Educational levels were also mentioned with 4% uneducated, 7% primary, 34% high school and 55% graduates participating in this study. 96% patients with appointment reported that they were satisfied with the proposed treatment plan (p-value: 0.000). Majority of the patients understood that they were going to receive treatment from the students (p-value: 0.000). Conclusion: Dental patients visiting the REU clinics seem to be highly satisfied with the treatment plan being explained to them. Patients with appointment showed more patience with the dental students as compared with the emergency patients.
