Title:  Practitioners’ knowledge and acceptance of paediatric dental procedures under general anaesthesia

Abstract:  Aim As paediatric treatment under dental general anaesthesia (DGA) in China is a fairly new technique that was first applied at the beginning of the 21st century, the purpose of this study was to explore practitioners’ understanding and acceptance of paediatric dental procedures under general anaesthesia (GA). Materials and Methods This cross-sectional study was conducted among 300 practitioners at the Hospital of Stomatology, Guangxi Medical University, and Guangxi China. A questionnaire was used to collect information about the practitioners’ knowledge and acceptance of DGA, and multiple logistic regression analysis was used to test the relationship between the practitioners’ knowledge and their acceptance of DGA. Results The average scores for the practitioners’ knowledge of DGA was 4.45 ±1.49. Also, 77.0% of them were willing to refer children for DGA. Practitioners who accepted DGA had higher DGA knowledge scores than those who did not accept it [(4.63 ± 1.38) vs. (3.82 ±1.48), p <0.001]. After controlling for demographic factors, the practitioners’ knowledge of DGA was significantly related to their acceptance of DGA (OR=1.47, 95% CI=1.21 -1.79). Conclusion Practitioners’ knowledge of DGA is a significant indicator for their acceptance of DGA for children.
