Abstract [sv]

The aim of the study was to examine experiences and attitudes to dental hygienist treatment in a group of patients by using the assessment tools Corah Dental Anxiety Scale (DAS) and Dental Hygienist Beliefs Survey (DHBS) at the dental hygienist clinic, the university of Kristianstad. Another aim of the study was to test the reliability of the assessment tools. Methods: Fifteen respondents answered the two questionnaires at two different occasions before dental hygienist treatment. The results showed that nine respondents reported that they are absolutely calm when their dental hygienist is going to remove tartar, while six are a little bit worried or tensed. The categories ethics, communication, trust and control in DHBS had a positive agreement (mean value 1.1 and 1.2). The reliability showed a percent agreement between 100% and 80% and the Kappa coefficients were between 1.0 and 0.29. Eight categories had “very good agreement”, four “good agreement”, three “moderate agreement” and one “fair agreement”. Conclusion: The respondents’ experiences are affected by the dental hygienists. The respondents experienced dental hygienists and their treatment generally positive. More control over the dental care situation was however desired. Due to the low number of respondents it is not possible to judge the reliability.
