Aim To develop a child-centred patient satisfaction questionnaire for use in an Outpatient Paediatric Dental Department. Method Data from patient satisfaction interviews was used to develop a child satisfaction questionnaire, which was used in two different centres after piloting. Results The final questionnaire contained 7 questions and a comments section, using writing and facial images used to record children views. The questionnaire was distributed to 203 children; 95% were happy or okay with the waiting area, 69% were happy about seeing the dentist and 77% children were happy overall. Conclusion Measures of satisfaction of children with regard to dental treatment were very different from those commonly used for adults. Further development and implementation of child satisfaction surveys should be considered.
