Évaluation de la capacité des étudiants à anticiper les difficultés d'un traitement endodontique initial au sein de l'UFR Odontologie de Bordeaux

Abstract : Endodontic treatment is a source of many failures. In order to allow students for being able to anticipate endodontic difficulties, evaluation of clinical reasoning is critical in initial training. The aim of the study was to assess the ability of dental students to anticipate difficulties during initial endodontic treatment. Materials and methods: Two cross-sectional studies were conducted among students of 4th, 5th and 6th year, in Bordeaux University Dental School. The first study, based on a theoretical clinical case, aimed to compare the estimates made by students and teachers regarding the difficulty of an endodontic treatment. The second study, based on clinical cases carried out in hospitals, aimed at comparing the level of difficulty estimated by the student before the treatment, to the level of difficulty actually encountered during the act. All questionnaires were completed anonymously. The statistical analyses, based on the Kruskall Wallis test, were made using “Epi Info” software. Results: The first study did not show any significant difference regarding estimation of the difficulty of endodontic treatment between students and teachers, except for the management of pain. The second study showed that a small majority of students correctly estimated endodontic difficulties. Conclusion : The results of this study suggested a lack of anticipation of the difficulties of dental students, regarding specific steps of endodontic treatment. This work also highlighted students' interest in introducing new tools for endodontic training, based on self-assessment and pedagogical feedback.
