Objectives: Considering that the first visit for dentofacial trauma is generally in emergency departments, the
awareness and knowledge of the emergency medicine staff regarding the treatment of dentofacial injuries is
very important for the prognosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the knowledge, education, and
self-confidence levels of emergency medicine physicians and nurses concerning the diagnosis and treatment
of dentofacial traumatic injuries in pediatric patients.
Methods: This questionnaire-based, cross-sectional study included emergency medicine physicians and emergency medicine nurses. The survey contained questions and three sections on participants’ general data, attitudes, basic knowledge, and confidence levels in managing dentofacial trauma.
Results: A total of 407 participants (250 emergency medicine physicians and 157 emergency medicine nurses) were included in this study. There was a significant difference between the groups regarding the correct answers to the questions about trauma management and emergency management of crown fractures and avulsed permanent teeth (p <0.05).
Conclusion: Our findings show that there is a lack of information on dentofacial trauma for emergency medicine physicians and nurses. In order to increase knowledge in this area and to improve the diagnosis and management of dentofacial trauma, interdisciplinary seminars, case discussions, and continuing education programs should be held for emergency medicine staff.
