Examined knowledge, attitudes, self-efficacy, and behavior concerning informed consent regarding dental patients. 128 dental patients (mean age 41.7 yrs) completed questionnaires concerning knowledge of and attitudes and behavior toward present status, purpose and risks of treatment, treatment costs and consent, and alternative treatment options. Results show that 9.4% of Ss were acquainted with informed consent legislation; however, more Ss were familiar with specific rights. A majority of Ss did not ask questions concerning treatment, and only 20% asked their dentist about costs of treatment or examination.
