In 2004, 2005 and 2006 Statistiska Central- byrån (Statistics Sweden), on commission of the Swedish Dental Association, carried out an opinion study among newly graduated dentists in Sweden in order to evaluate dental skill after completed dental training. These studies were performed at the dental institutions in Sweden and were published in Tandläkartidningen 2007. The aim of this study was to, once again, evaluate these opinions. This study is a follow up of the previous studies, and emphasize on the impor- tance of how opinion studies are performed. In contrast to the former studies this study had a qualitative approach. Instead of questions with predefined answers, telephone interviews with open answers were performed. The possibility that the questionnaire design could influence the result outcome is discussed. 88 percent of the re- sponders in the present study were satisfied with their clinical training, compared to 70 percent in the earlier study. Thirty percent of the respond- ers stated the clinical training to be insufficient, though, in particular in prosthetics and oral sur- gery. More than 50 percent stated insufficient training in dental care for disabled and elderly patients. Most of the responders answered that their preclinical training were sufficient and adequate. In contrast to previous studies no, or small, differences in opinion about the training at different dental institutions were reported. Most of the newly graduated dentists had a tutor dur- ing their first employments.
