Abstract (summary)

This study was designed to evaluate the educational and planning objectives of dental hygiene programs in Israel. The investigation attempted to determine: (1) if public access to preventive services has been increased; (2) if the structure of the curriculum reflects patterns in skill utilization; (3) the clinical competence of program graduates; (4) if student expectations conform to employment conditions and (5) the degree of job satisfaction among graduates. Questionnaires were administered to dentists, dental hygienists, dental students and dental hygiene students to elicit responses relative to characteristics of dental hygiene education and employment. Survey results indicate a lack of congruence between planning objectives and clinical practice. Planning and policy implications for dental auxiliary utilization and education are presented.
