Traduction en anglais : What is the parents'attitude towards dental screening in schools and kindergartens ? Results of an inquiry among parents.
The aim of this study is to explore the opinion of parents on dental screening in schools and kindergartens.
A sample of 490 parents attending a school medical inspection was asked to fill in a self-administered questionnaire.
The parents could express their level of agreement with five statements concerning dental screening and the recall system existing in Baden-Württemberg.
The answers were conceived according to the Likert scale.
The results of this study show that a large majority of the interviewees had a positive attitude towards school dental screening and the recall system.
Compared to the Germans, the immigrants had a more positive attitude towards screening and a less positive attitude towards the recall system.
Compared to the parents with a lower education level, the parents with a higher educational level were more in favour of the recall system and less in favour of dental screening.
The high acceptance of school dental inspections among parents should encourage the responsible authorities to expand dental screening, which is laid down in social legislation, to a greater number of schools and kindergartens.
