Abstract


Introduction: Pediatric patients come to the dental office with visible fear and stress. However, it is also important to understand the level of stress the dental practitioner undergoes. This may vary on the basis of several factors of which the most important is the clinical experience. Materials and methods: This is a cross-sectional study, which utilized a closed-ended survey targeting general dental practitioners in Saudi Arabia. An electronic survey was constructed using Google forms and distributed using emails and social media applications. Results: Overall, no significant relationship was found when males were compared with females. Few survey questions were found to be statistically significant when compared on the basis of clinical experience. Conclusion: Confidence levels in treating a pediatric patient depend on the behavior and attitude. No comparison between males and females could be identified.

Keywords: Pediatric patients, Behavior, Dental treatment.
