Feedback[edit source]

Hey! I found this great article on the causes, symptoms and consequences of dental fear. It could contribute in a big way to help you kickstart your page! Hope you enjoy :)

Hey! It might be useful to look at different theories on how people develop phobias. I've found a website that provides some background information on the psychoanalytic theory, learning theory, and biological theory which might spark some interest. I hope this helps!,staying%20away%20from%20a%20snake. --Taylor Mamukic (discusscontribs) 02:44, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Hey there! I see that you are discussing prevalence rates of dental fear, so I thought that this article may help you discuss this! It is titled "The extent and nature of dental fear and phobia in Australia" by Armfield (2010) which can be found here: I hope this helps with your chapter! :) --U3190016 (discusscontribs) 12:31, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for sentence casing. For example, the wikitext should be:

== Cats and mice ==

rather than

== Cats and Mice ==

For more info, see Making and summarising social contributions.

Section headings[edit source]

  1. Basic, 2-level heading structure - could benefit from further development.
  2. Aim for 3 to 6 top-level headings between the Overview and Conclusion, with up to a similar number of sub-headings for large sections.
  3. See earlier comment about Heading casing.
  4. Sections which include sub-sections should also include an overview paragraph (which doesn't need a separate heading) before branching into the sub-headings.

Key points[edit source]

  1. Overview - Consider adding:
    1. international (not just US) prevalence.
    2. an image.
    3. an example or case study.
  2. Basic development of key points for each section.
  3. Include in-text interwiki links for the first mention of key terms to relevant Wikipedia articles and/or to other relevant book chapters.
  4. Consider including more examples/case studies.

Image[edit source]

  1. An image (figure) is presented.
  2. Caption
    1. does not use APA style (replace colon with full-stop).
    2. could better explain how the image connects to key points being made in the main text.

References[edit source]

  1. OK
  2. For APA referencing style, check and correct:
    1. capitalisation
    2. italicisation
    3. doi formatting
  3. Excellent

Resources[edit source]

  1. See also
    1. Also link to relevant book chapters
  2. External links
    1. Name of link should match the target page name
    2. Include source in brackets after link

Overview[edit source]

Hey the paragraph you have in the overview would possibly better suited in an introduction section, as i find the overview is more of an abstract. Here are some possible helpful links 'overcome dental anxiety', 'how to end fear of the dentist', topic sounds interesting interested to see how it ends up --Laurenpeel (discusscontribs) 04:21, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is an insufficient chapter.
  2. The main areas for improvement include:
    1. more detailed explanation of relevant theory
    2. more detailed explanation of relevant research
    3. greater use of peer-reviewed sources and less use of non-peer-reviewed sources
  3. Move non-peer-reviewed sources (e.g., What is Dental Phobia, 2018) to external links; replace citations with peer-reviewed sources.
  4. This chapter is well under the maximum word count.
  5. For additional feedback, see the following comments and these copyedits.

Theory[edit source]

  1. Promising, but insufficient coverage of relevant theory is provided.
  2. Anxiety is not a mental health disorder. It is a more general description of a state of worry. Generalised anxiety disorder is a disorder. This is an important distinction.
  3. Some statements are unreferenced (e.g., see the [factual?] tags).

Research[edit source]

  1. Promising, but insufficient use of research.
  2. Some claims are unreferenced (e.g., see the [factual?] tags).
  3. Perhaps consider the potential role of the environment (e.g., pictures, sound/music, virtual reality)
  4. When describing important research findings, consider including a bit more detail about the methodology and indicating the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
  5. Greater emphasis on major reviews and/or meta-analyses would be helpful.

Written expression[edit source]

  1. Written expression
    1. Overall, the quality of written expression is basic.
    2. Addressing the topic development feedback could have helped to improve this chapter.
    3. Avoid exaggerated/overly emotion expression (e.g., "huge"). Similarly, the concluding statement that to "to avoid having all your teeth fall out" seems to lack nuance.
    4. Avoid one sentence paragraphs. A paragraph should typically consist of three to five sentences.
    5. Use 3rd person perspective rather than 1st (e.g., "we") or 2nd person (e.g., "you")[1].
  2. Layout
    1. See earlier comments about heading casing.
    2. Avoid having sections with only one sub-section.
  3. Learning features
    1. One use of embedded in-text interwiki links to Wikipedia articles. Adding interwiki links for the first mention of key words and technical concepts would make the text more interactive.
    2. No use of embedded in-text links or see also links to related book chapters. Embedding in-text links to related book chapters helps to integrate this chapter into the broader book project.
    3. Basic use of image(s). Consider also using some more calming imagery?
    4. No use of table(s).
    5. Basic use of feature box(es).
    6. No use of quiz(zes).
    7. Good use of a case study. More could be added.
  4. Grammar
    1. Use serial commas[2] - it is part of APA style and generally recommended by grammaticists.
    2. Check and correct use of that vs. who.
    3. The grammar for some sentences could be improved (e.g., see the [grammar?] tags).
  5. Proofreading
    1. More proofreading is needed to fix typos and bring the quality of written expression closer to a professional standard.
  6. APA style
    1. In general, do not capitalise the names of disorders, therapies, theories, etc..
    2. Numbers under 10 should be written in words (e.g., five); numbers 10 and over should be written in numerals (e.g., 10).
    3. Direct quotes need page numbers.
    4. Use double- rather than single-quote marks for emphasis.
    5. Figures and tables
      1. Use APA style for Figure captions. See example.
      2. Use APA style to refer to each Table and each Figure (e.g., do not use italics, check and correct capitalisation).
    6. Citations are not in full APA style. For example:
      1. If there are three or more authors, cite the first author followed by et al., then year (e.g., Smith et al., 2020)
    7. References are not in full APA style. For example:
      1. Check and correct use of capitalisation.
      2. Check and correct use of italicisation.
      3. Move non-peer-reviewed sources into external links and replace with peer-reviewed sources.
