Patients’ perceptions and preferences of oral and maxillofacial surgeons in a university dental hospital

Öz:
There is a lack of information regarding the dental patient’s point of view of oraland maxillofacial surgeons (OMFSs). The aim of this study was to evaluate theperceptions and preferences of a group of university dental hospital patients forOMFSs.Materials and methodsThis study was based on patients’ self-assessment using a questionnaire. A totalof 530 patients were enrolled for the study. The patients’ preferences regardingthe surgeons’ age, gender, religion, race and experience were determined andcompared statistically.ResultsA total of 506 questionnaires were considered as complete and used in theanalysis. Female patients preferred female practitioner more than male patientsdid (p=0.002), but no significant difference was found between male andfemale patients regarding preference for the age (p=0.464), ethnicity (p=0.926)and religion (p=0.261) of the OMFS. The educational status of the patients didnot have an effect on the gender preference for the OMFS (p=0.114); however,educational status significantly affected the preferences for the ethnicity andreligion of the practitioners (p=0.001).ConclusionToday patient expectations and perceptions take place in post graduateeducation programs. In this study we determined a wide range of differentfactors for choosing an OMFS. The diversity of these factors may affect the qualityof the health service and thus must be considered in determining the content oforal and maxillofacial curriculum.

Bir üniversite diş hastanesine başvuran hastaların oral ve maksillofasiyal cerrah algıları ve tercihleri. Amaç: Diş hekimliği hastalarının oral ve maksillofasiyal cerrahlar (OMFC) ile ilgili görüşlerine yönelik veri eksiktir. Bu çalışmanın amacı bir üniversite diş hastanesine başvuran bir grup hastanın OMFC ile ilgili algı ve tercihlerinin araştırılmasıdır. Gereç ve Yöntem: Bu çalışma özel hazırlanmış bir anket kullanılarak hastalardan elde edilen veriler üzerinde yapılmıştır. Toplam 530 hasta çalışmaya katıldı. Hastaların cerrahın yaşı, cinsiyeti, dini, etnik kökeni ve deneyimine yönelik tercihleri belirlenerek istatistiksel olarak karşılaştırıldı. Bulgular: Toplam 506 anket tam kabul edildi ve değerlendirmeye alındı. Kadın hastalar erkek hastalara göre daha fazla kadın cerrah tercih etmekteydi (p=0,002) ancak, kadın ve erkek hastalar arasında cerrahın yaşı (p=0,464), etnik kökeni (p=0,926) ve dinine (p=0,261) ilişkin anlamlı bir tercih farkı yoktu. Hastaların eğitim seviyesi ile cerrahı cinsiyetine göre tercih etmek arasında anlamlı bir ilişki yoktu (p=0,114); ancak hastaların eğitim seviyesinin, cerrahın etnik kökenini ve dinini dikkate alarak tercih etme açısından anlamlı etkisi bulundu (p=0,001). Sonuç: Günümüzde mezuniyet sonrası eğitim programlarında hastaların beklentilerine ve algılarına yer verilmektedir. Bu çalışmada hastaların OMFC seçiminde pek çok faktörün etkili olduğu görüldü. Bu faktörlerin değişkenliği verilen sağlık hizmetinin kalitesini etkileyebilmektedir ve bu nedenle oral ve maksillofasiyal cerrahi eğitim programının içeriği belirlenirken göz önünde bulundurulmalıdır.
