Abstract

To improve patient care in general dentistry it is important to understand the information needs of general dentists and the barriers that prevent timely access to information at the point of care. We interviewed a convenience sample of 14 general dentists during routine patient care encounters. All dentists experienced information needs (M = 55% of cases). Grounded theory methodology was used to analyze interview transcripts for emerging themes regarding their information needs.
