A computer-assisted learning program with a tutorial, self-assessment exercises and an expert system has been developed. Sixty-seven general dental practitioners were requested to evaluate the program. The results from those practitioners who returned the questionnaire showed that 57% found the program generally easy to use with the appropriate level of difficulty of tasks and content of supporting information, which it was felt improved their knowledge of the management of fractured incisors. Conclusion: it is worthwhile to develop such programs for the education of general dental practitioners. All users of this program felt that it was better than video, audio tapes, journals or books on the subject.
