Hygiène bucco-dentaire chez l'enfant : l'information disponible sur Internet est-elle en accord avec les recommandations des sociétés savantes ?

Abstract : Introduction. Internet is a widely used tool by parents seeking answers to their questions about their children's dental health. Objectives. Estimate the quality and structure of the sites dealing with children's oral health and the information given on this topic. Then compare the information available with that of the scientific institutions’ SFOP and HAS. Materials et methods. Determine through an opinion poll the 4 key words most often used starting from the first 2 pages of Google, Bing and Yahoo. Make an estimate chart of the quality of information to compare the contents of the Internet sites selected with French recommendations, then estimate the structure of the sites with NetScoring. Measure the presence of accreditation by health quality label on the net (Hon code) Results. 15 sites have been included. 12 obtained a grade above average with our evaluation chart and NetScoring. All the Internet sites got the average with Netscoring. There doesn't seem to be an obvious link between the references of the analysed sites and the grades obtained with Netscoring and our chart except for 2 Internet sites. Referencing and occurrence of sites don't seem to be correlated either. 4 out of 15 sites have delivered information non-conform to scientific societies. The classification of the sites with Netscoring and our chart of evaluation are identical; only 2 out of 15 Internet sites analysed are certified HON code. Conclusion. Internet sites are partially in agreement with recommendations. The Internet sites don't seem to be of good quality since only 1 out of 15, www.usfbd.fr, dealt with all the items following the present recommendations. For the large majority of people, it seems that the possibility to get to some information of bad quality is big. Critical reading being difficult, for pretty good professionals as well. Dentists remain the best advisers to inform parents about the dental hygiene of their children, and this, as long as the risk of reading and believing false information on the Internet will not be appreciated.
