The Impact of Time Pressure on Dentists' Radiographic Diagnostic Performance
  • Room N12c, ITTC Building, Plymouth Science Park

This informal seminar will be given by Anastasios Plessas from Plymouth Dental School, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry.

Stress is prevalent amongst dentists. Time pressure has been cited as a major stressor in dental clinical practice. A recent systematic review identified a paucity of experimental research on the impact of different stressors on dentists’ clinical performance. The aim of this experimental study was to explore the role of time pressure on dentists’ radiographic diagnostic performance. Diagnostic errors and omissions of pathology in radiographic reports may occur when dentists are making decisions while under time-pressure. Our data demonstrates that time pressure could decrease the sensitivity but not the specificity of the radiographic diagnostic performance of dentists.

This seminar is aimed at University staff and students. Contact laura.gill@plymouth.ac.uk to book a place.
