Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the decision-making practices of a subset of North American prosthodontists. A survey was administered to assess practitioner views regarding the relative importance of practitioner, patient, and patient family beliefs and preferences during treatment planning of the edentulous patient. In responses to abstract questions, practitioners appeared to endorse a blending of patient and practitioner beliefs and preferences when treatment planning. However, in response to a question proposing a simulated clinical scenario, practitioners indicated they placed a greater emphasis on their own beliefs when choosing a treatment option.
