Abstract

Authors translated the Corah's "Dental Anxiety Scale" (DAS) into Hungarian. 143 dental patients, and 74 dental student's, were investigated and the DAS values were compared to the State-Trait Anxiety Invertory (STAI-S and STAI-T) values. Mean values were: DAS: 9.92, STAI-S: 39.17, STAI-T: 41.34. Authors found lower scores in the case of dental students comparing to patients (p < 0.001), and women comparing to men (p < 0.001). DAS values increased slowly with age, and decreased at 60 years old, or older patients. Married patients had higher DAS and STAI-S scores, but lower STAI-T scores comparing to the unmarried and divorced patients.
