  • The primary objective of this pilot study was to evaluate the effect of an online head and neck examination instructional video for dental hygiene (DH) faculty knowledge. It was hypothesized that the use of such a video would increase knowledge and enhance calibration. Of 24 DH clinical faculty invited to participate, (N=18) completed an online pre-test, instructional video, immediate post-test, and four month follow up retention-test. Results showed a mean pre-test score of 68%, post-test score of 76%, and retention-test score of 80%. Scores increased 15.7% from pre-test to post-test, decreasing 2.8% from post-test to retention. There was a statistically significant difference between years of teaching experience and lower pre-test scores (P=.012). The knowledge increase was retained over four months and neither faculty position nor years of clinical or teaching experience affected test scores. The instructional video increased the knowledge level of DH clinical faculty for head and neck examinations.
