Female students were asked to indicate willingness to consult 24 health and related professionals for smoking cessation, eating disorders or domestic abuse, as well as indicate frequency of professional contact. Subjects were most likely to consult medical/mental health professionals, relatively unwilling to consult dentists, hygienists, acupuncturists, or pharmacists about eating disorders or domestic abuse, but relatively more willing to consult them about smoking cessation. Willingness to consult nonmedical professionals was directly related to subjects' contacts with them. Although the medical training of dentists is significant, these negative patient attitudes may account for their reluctance to intrude into nondental areas of patient health without compensation.
