The authors developed a profile of current Internet users in dentistry using a survey administered through electronic mail and the World Wide Web. Eight hundred twenty-five respondents from 52 countries comprised dentists, assistants, hygienists, dental students and educators. Respondents reported that they used the Internet for discussing clinical cases, obtaining diagnostic and therapeutic information, buying dental products, communicating with patients and participating in continuing education. Eighty percent considered the Internet to be a useful or very useful resource in dentistry.
