Abstract

This article reports the results of a survey of general practice dentists on the relationship of the dentist's year of graduation to the ordering of bitewing radiographs for patients. More recent graduates were more likely to indicate ordering the radiographs at 6-month intervals. There were no differences in ordering associated with the dentist's experience. Shorter intervals between ordering were indicated by all dentists for patient groups at high risk of caries.
