Environmental sustainability: the attitudes and experiences of UK students in the oral health care profession. Br Dent J 2024; https://doi.org/10.1038/s41415-024-7135-z
With this thought in mind, Durnall et al. conducted a survey whereby dental students from all 19 UK dental schools who wished to participate were asked for their views on questions which included but were not limited to:
Whether they have given consideration to the impact oral health care has on the environment
Whether their undergraduate degree has exposed, emphasised and promoted the impact oral health care provision has on the environment
Whether and how they feel awareness of environmental sustainability should be increased and what impact this will have on the environment.
