Doctors behind dentists in levels of trust

Sunday, March 30, 2014


We trust our dentist more than we trust our doctor, according to new research. There is a view that has been held of the traditional family GP widely trusted within the community, who is always around to give out advice where it is needed. But all new research has revealed that dentists are winning the race to be trusted as 88% say that they have an extremely high degree of trust in their dentist, even greater than that of their doctor. The poll, which was conducted by Bray Leino, also says that twice as many people are valuing their relationship with their dentist over their doctor. The level of trust that is reflected in the amount of people following any advice from their dentist, with more than 75% of people deciding how often they go for a check-up based on what their dentist is recommending. But two in every three people have not visited a dentist for at least three years, whilst more than 25% of people who do not visit of their dentist as their main reason for not doing so. Dr Nigel Carter of the British Dental Health Foundation says, “The excellent relationship that exists between patient and dentist will hopefully result in oral health improvements throughout generations. It is reassuring to see so many people actively choosing to seek preventive measures rather than simply waiting for something to go wrong. Those who still choose not to visit their dentist may do so for genuine reasons, and fear certainly is one, but advances in technology and the number of nervous patients means more provisions than ever before are available to treat them. If you trust your dentist you are more likely to follow their advice if they recommend a course of orthodontic or cosmetic treatment. The key is visiting as often as they recommend.”
