This fellowship research study will assess the illness perception of parent/caregivers of children with severe tooth decay compared to children without tooth decay. This research will build on limited work in this area of understanding the perception of parent/caregivers towards their child’s tooth decay. The findings will be useful to identify factors that contribute to poor perception regarding childhood tooth decay.
