Sweet, John, Wilson, Jeffrey and Pugsley, Lesley A. 2008. Chairside teaching and the perceptions of dental teachers in the UK. British Dental Journal 205 (10) , pp. 565-569. 10.1038/sj.bdj.2008.983

This study outlines how dental tutors at the chairside view their teaching and describes what are considered important current issues, requirements and recommendations for good chairside teaching practice. A qualitative analysis was undertaken of stakeholder perceptions of chairside teaching from both a single dental school study and a UK wide evaluation workshop. The evaluation of good chairside teaching showed that training requirements might be quite different for different stakeholders in chairside teaching. Further, this evaluation process may serve as a process model for institutional change for improvements in chairside teaching. This article is the second of a series of three and evaluates chairside teaching on a UK wide scale. The first, investigated the perceptions of stakeholders of chairside teaching at a single dental school. The third provides educational tools to encourage collaboration and sharing good chairside teaching practice. A further accompanying article reviews some of the educational methodology and innovations in teaching and learning that may be applied to dentistry.
