OGAWA, Diogo; HIGASI, Maura Sassahara  e  CALDARELLI, Pablo Guilherme. Geriatric Dentistry in Political Pedagogical Projects of Dentistry courses in Southern Brazil. Rev. ABENO [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.4, pp. 91-99. ISSN 1679-5954.

This is a quantitative, exploratory and descriptive study, which aimed to present a situational overview of the inclusion of geriatric dentistry in the Political Pedagogical Project (PPP) of Dentistry courses of Higher Education Institutions (HEI) from southern Brazil. The courses' websites were analyzed seeking information related to the offer of geriatric dentistry or equivalent discipline. It were also analyzed the nature of institutions (public or private), the State of the institutions, the period in which the course is offered (year/semester), nature of education (theoretical, practical or theoretical-practical), total workload, availability of menu, objectives and contents taught. From 36 graduation courses in dentistry analyzed, 14 offered geriatric dentistry discipline, six public and eight private. As for the nature of the discipline, in four courses it is theoretical, four are theoretical and practical and six courses didn´t report this information. Ten HEIs presented menu and content taught, six public and four private. No information was found related to PPP of three institutions, two public and one private. This study made it possible to describe the present insertion of geriatric dentistry in PPP of HEI in southern Brazil. In addition, it was observed that not all dental courses provide information about their curriculum online, and when available, not all features are presented.
