Validation of a Facial Image Scale to assess child dental anxiety.
Int J Paediatr Dent. 2002 Jan; 12(1):47-52.IJ

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To examine the validity of a scale that uses faces as an indicator of children's dental anxiety.

SETTING

Department of Child Dental Health waiting room, Newcastle Dental Hospital.

SUBJECTS AND METHODS

100 children (aged 3-18 years) completed the Facial Image Scale (FIS) and the Venham Picture Test (VPT) in the dental hospital waiting room.

RESULTS

A strong correlation (0.7) was found between the two scales, indicating good validity for the FIS. Findings also showed that a small, but significant, number of children are anxious in the dental context.

CONCLUSION

The findings suggest that the FIS is a valid means of assessing child dental anxiety status in a clinical context.
