The specific aims of the four papers were (I) to develop a questionnaire for assessing coping strategies in the dental treatment situation and to evaluate its psychometric properties; (II) to further investigate and evaluate the newly constructed Dental Coping Strategy Questionnaire (DCSQ-15); (III) to investigate the relationship between the use of dental coping strategies in DCSQ-15, emotional distress and sociodemographic factors; (IV) to generate a conceptual framework explaining the main concerns of patients with dental anxiety who, despite their fear, participate in regular dental treatment, in order to acquire a deeper understanding of what they do to manage the dental-treatment situation.
