The objective was to determine whether parental dental anxiety is associated with the caries status of their children. A higher level of dental anxiety was found among caries-active children, probably due to their more negative experiences in treatment. Also, fathers from the lower socioeconomic group who had a high level of dental anxiety had children with lower df-scores.
