To evaluate the reliability and validity of a newly proposed classification system for categorisation of parental behaviour (CCPB) in the dental setting.
Parents of patients aged 5–14 years were included. 127 parents were evaluated and rated on two scales: Parental Cooperation Scale (PCS; 1–4) and CCPB (0–5) by two trained examiners during the initial interaction of the parent with the examiners at their first visit in the dental setting. Kappa Score measurement of agreement was used to assess the inter-rater reliability. Spearman’s rho correlation was used to assess the correlations between PCS and CCPB.
The Kappa score between independent raters was 0.774 (substantial agreement) and Spearman’s rho correlation coefficient was 0.778, which was statistically significant (p < 0.001).
The CCPB refers to the same domain as the PCS and was found to be a reliable tool to be used in future research.
