Updating practices among Yorkshire general dental practitioners

Br Dent J. 1991 Jan 19;170(2):73-5. doi: 10.1038/sj.bdj.4807424.


Ninety-eight per cent was the response achieved by a June 1989 postal survey to determine how general dental practitioners (GDPs) in Yorkshire Region maintain their professional knowledge. Such a good response adds confidence to the survey's findings which show many GDPs are educationally active and use a variety of media to keep up to date. Nevertheless, there remains a substantial proportion who should be doing more and need encouragement.
