      Question Research Dental Phobia - Participants wanted!

      Dear dental phobics,

      My name is B.D., a second year student Human Technology
      of de Haagse Hogeschool in the Netherlands. For the subject Project Vision (PVI) we have to
      examine the oral healthcare of American people.

      To specify our subject group, we decided to examine the oral healthcare of people who are scared
      or are having fear of the dentist.
      Given that my project group doesnít exist of any Americans and doesnít know (a lot) Americans who are afraid of the dentist, we would like to know if itís possible to get in contact with people who are.

      How the research will look like is still unclear, however what we do know is that the research will be anonymous. We also know that part of the research will be done at home or online (online probing) and some of it will be done at our school using a method called context-mapping.
      Currently we are exploring the ways of acquiring participants for any parts of our research.

      Maybe you can help us acquiring these participants by replying to this post. Perhaps you can also ask colleagues, friends, relatives, friends of colleagues, friends of friends etc. Any additional information is also welcome of course! The anonymous results will be used to think and build better ways of experiencing the dentist and oral healthcare for american people with dental fear.

      Yours sincerely,

      B.D.

      Hi,

      I just saw your reply on the research request.

      Basicly we will send you some small fun assignments. The assignments will include some writing and drawing and will be about your experiences at the dentist and your oral hygiene. Also there will be a small survey with some general questions (personal information).
      1 assignment (approx 10 min) will be done each day with a maximum of 5.

      Don't hesitate to ask more questions!

      Would yoiu like to participate in our research? Or do you know anyone who would?

      Thanks in advance!

      yours sincerely,

      B. Dalmeijer

      Dear dental phobics,

      Read the text below if you're even slightly interested to participate in our research.
      Download the assignments and see if you would like to participate.
      Thanks in advance.

      After you have downloaded the file and unzipped it, then
      you can (preferably) print them out. However a few assignments only requires you
      to wright some things down. If you like, you can also do that
      on the computer any way you want (as long as we can read it).
      The draw assignments can also be done on a loose sheet of paper but not on the computer.

      The rest of the information about the assignments and the research can be found in the files.
      Print them out and it all will be clear.

      Your information will stay anonymous and will never be publicated
      outside this project.

      If you know more people (with dental fear) that are willing to participate in our research,
      simply share this page with them.

      The deadline for the assignments is Thursday, March 22.

      If you have any questions regarding the research, assignments, anything,
      donít hesitate to contact us @ dentalforceone@hotmail.com
