Stakeholder Engagement and Multi-Risk Assessment in Dental Care Settings


The dentist's office may be an important setting for conducting multi-risk assessments (MRAs) for oral and physical health risks to increase opportunities for early assessment of and intervention for risk behaviors. This study characterized dental practitioners' (dentists and hygienists), dental payers', and patients' attitudes about: (a) conducting/participating in MRAs during dental visits; and (b) providing/receiving follow-up counseling about and referrals for identified risks.
