This article reports on research that assessed public attitudes toward dentists and the dental profession and compared them to dentists' own attitudes about their roles. Enhanced knowledge of patients' perceptions can help practicing dentists gain a better understanding of public perceptions of themselves and of dentistry as a profession, as well as enhance their relationships with patients.
