Methods:

This is a cross-sectional study whose sample consisted of 1015 children aged 5-12 years from 10 public schools of Salvador, Brazil. The students produced drawings about their main idea associated with the dentist and answered a semi-structured interview consisting of seven items.

Results:

Males (521 volunteers -51.3%) were more prevalent than females (494 volunteers, 48.6%), 688 (67.7%) children had experienced dental care, and need for treatment was the reason for seeking dental care to 306 (30.1%) of them. In describing the professional using one word, positive words totaled 805 (79.1%) responses, negative words accounted for 24 (2.2%) and 186 (18.3%) participants could not answer. The drawing category that had the largest number of volunteers was ôProceduresõ, with 238 (23.4%) drawings, followed by ôDental Consultationõ with 228 (22.4%), ôOther Professionalsõ with 174 (17.1%), ôDentistõ with 115 (11.3%), ôOral Healthõ with 71 (6.9%), ôMiscellaneousõ with 71 (6.9%), ôDental Officeõ with 55 (5.4%), ôMouthõ with 36 (3.5%) and ôPain / Fearõ with 27 (2.6%).
