ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the attitude and knowledge level of a group of elementary school teachers in management of traumatic dental injury. The sample consisted of 231 elementary school teachers in Jeon-Buk province, and data was collected by means of a self-administered questionnaire. The questionnaire surveyed the teachers’general information, attitude on the dental trauma education, knowledge of management of tooth fracture, luxation, avulsion and tooth storage media. Only 15.2% of the teachers had received dental first aid treatment education, but 97% were favorable to receiving education. Although there were differences among the questions, insufficient knowledge and awareness of the management of traumatic dental injury were shown in the majority of teachers. It is recommended that education strategies and programs for improving the awareness of immediate management of traumatic dental injuries are necessary for elementary school teachers in Jeon-Buk province.
