Improving Dental School Clinic Operations Using Business Intelligence Data.

J Dent Educ 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Nalliah, DDS, MHCH, is Director of Clinical Education in DDS Program, University of Michigan School of Dentistry; Kelly Miller, BS, is Senior Business Intelligence Analyst, Michigan Medicine, Ann Arbor, MI; and Stephen Stefanac, DDS, MS, is Senior Associate Dean, University of Michigan School of Dentistry.

In dental school clinics, students spend a great deal of time waiting for faculty members to check and approve their work. Traditionally at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, students have left their cubicles to form lines behind supervising faculty members, and this line of students would follow the faculty member around from patient to patient. To address this problem and improve the patient experience, the school computerized the approval-seeking process by building the Faculty Request System (FRS) to enable students to stay with their patients while seeking the necessary approvals.

Motivation as a Predictor of Dental Students' Affective and Behavioral Outcomes: Does the Quality of Motivation Matter?

J Dent Educ 2019 Mar 11. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Cesar A. Orsini, DDS, MEd, FHEA, DHPE, is Assistant Professor, Faculty Development Office, Faculty of Dentistry, Universidad de los Andes, Chile; Vivian I. Binnie, BDS, MPH, SFHEA, PhD, is Senior Clinical University Teacher, School of Medicine, Dentistry, and Nursing, University of Glasgow, U.K.; and Oscar M. Jerez, PhD, is Director of Teaching and Learning Center, Faculty of Economics and Business, Universidad de Chile, Chile.

Since the motivation to study and engage in academic activities plays a key role in students' learning experience and well-being, gaining a better understanding of dental students' motivations can help educators implement interventions to support students' optimal motivations. The aim of this study, grounded in self-determination theory, was to determine the predictive role of different types of motivation (autonomous motivation, controlled motivation, and amotivation) in the affective and behavioral outcomes of dental students. Amotivation is the absence of drive to pursue an activity due to a failure to establish relationships between activity and behavior; controlled motivation involves behaving under external pressure or demands; and autonomous motivation is an internalized behavior with a full sense of volition, interest, choice, and self-determination.
