Abstract

Background and Objective: To improve the level of satisfaction of the student from the environment of learning is one of the important challenges faced by dental educators today. It has been hypothesized that since the learning styles of students are extremely varied, adopting methods of imparting dental education that suit their style will result in improved learning. The aim of this study is to effectively gain information about the learning style preferences amongst the dental students in the institutions of South East Asia. Method and Results: A list of dental schools in the region was made from the World Dental School list. An internet based search was done to identify the infrastructural facilities from the website or via email. Scores were allotted for each learning style preference and the results were tabulated and analysed. Conclusion: If adequate consideration is given to all parameters that affect dental educational environment, dental institutions will have a positive impact and will make dental learning, a more rewarding and pleasant experience.
