Lead X-Ray Vests: Pros And Cons In Dental Radiography And Patient Education On Radiographic Technology, 2020 Virginia Commonwealth University
Lead X-Ray Vests: Pros And Cons In Dental Radiography And Patient Education On Radiographic Technology, Kayla D. Oakley, Emily Deker
Dental Hygiene Student Scholarship
Problem: There is a greater need to emphasize and educate patients and providers about radiologic advancements and patient exposure. The tradition of placing lead x-ray vests on patients for all radiographs is no longer a necessity. Without the explanation of why lead aprons are no longer needed, unnecessary steps for the provider and potential harm to the patient could be caused.
Methods: This review of literature was assembled by analyzing data from primary and secondary sources through online databases. The most recent research on the risks and benefits of the use of lead x-ray vests towards patients in the dental ...

Utilization Of Rectangular Collimation In Dental And Dental Hygiene Programs, 2019 University of New Mexico
Utilization Of Rectangular Collimation In Dental And Dental Hygiene Programs, Elizabeth Ann Wagner
Dental Hygiene ETDs
Rectangular collimation has proven to reduce the radiation dose to the patient as well as increase image quality. Studies have been conducted in the past to determine whether utilization of rectangular collimation results in a greater retake rate, however, there is a lack of data regarding the amount of rectangular collimation devices that are currently in use. The purpose of this study was to determine to what extent, if any, rectangular collimators are being utilized in dental and dental hygiene programs.

Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Projects
Introduction: In response to the prevalence of early childhood carries (ECC) in the United States, recommendations were established for pediatric primary care providers to routinely incorporate oral-systemic health promotion services into clinical practice. An interprofessional education project was developed between Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) and dentistry students in San Francisco to assist trainees in the effective delivery of oral systemic health promotion services. Improving health promotion communication skills was identified as an area of need for both sets of learners. Therefore, the IPE activity was designed to incorporate Motivational Interviewing (MI) into the training along with pediatric oral health ...

Intraoral Imaging At Insertion Of Implant Supported Restorations At An Academic Institution : Conformity To Established Guidelines., J. Alec Power
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
The objective of this study was to establish the frequency of intraoral imaging at the time of insertion of implant supported restorations at University of Louisville School of Dentistry (ULSD). After IRB approval (14.1215), patients on whom an implant-supported single unit fixed restoration was placed were identified from the electronic health record over a 4-year period. Type of prosthesis retention (cement vs. screw) and discipline responsible for crown placement was recorded. Bitewing (BWx) or periapical (pa) images taken at the time of prosthesis placement were accessed and reviewed. Overall radiographic frequency according to modality was tallied and compared using ...
