Abstract

Introduction: Prediction of a child behavior and interaction with the practitioner, particularly a dentist, is an important factor in successful diagnosis and treatment specially at the first and generally at subsequent appointments. In this study, the major contributing factors which are important for the prediction of a childs' behavior and way of preparation of the practitioner were studied. Materials & Methods: In this descriptive-cross sectional study which was done during the second semester of 2001-2002 at Mashhad dental school, one hundred 3-6 year old children (50 girls and 50 boys) with normal physical, psychological and intelligence stata were selected randomly and classified according to a history through interviewing with parents and state behavior, comparing with franckles behavioral rating scale during three different dental visits. Results: The result revealed that 10.4 of children had difficult behavioral characteristics, 40.1 had easy behavioral characteristics and the remaining were placed in difficult-easy interval. These results were consistent with other studies according to franckles behavioral rating scale, but there were no relationships between easy-difficult behaviors and any of the factors age, occupation of parents or birth order of children. Conclusion: According to signs and factors achieved through observation, examination and interview with parents and children, it is possible to predict the childs' behavior during examination and treatment (specially dental treatments which are stressful for most of patients) and take appropriate actions according to childs' behavior without reaching the irritation threshold of child as well as the practitioner.
