Abstract

Aim: the aim of the present study is to evaluate the quality of videos related to oral surgery available at you tube website. Material and Methods: 39 videos retrieved from www.youtube.com were evaluated by five evaluators according to eight mutually agreed criteria. Each criterion had a score ranging from 0 to 5. The videos were classified in four groups; simple extraction, surgical extraction, extraction of impacted teeth, and management of dental infections by incision and drainage. The mean scores assigned by five evaluators to videos in four groups were estimated. Results: The quality of videos regarding their academic relevance, resource reliability, comprehensiveness and accuracy of information had a combined mean score of 3.37 (68%). The display quality including the duration, quality of sound and picture exhibited a mean score of 3.5 (70%). The reliability of the source of information had the least mean scores of 2.99 (59.8%) Conclusion: The information material available on Youtube about topics related to oral surgery including simple extraction, surgical extraction, extraction of impacted teeth, and management of dental infections by incision and drainage is of moderate quality.
