SamEng:  The aim of this study was to validate the Kleinknecht's Dental Fear S
         cale and the Getz's Dental Belief Survey in a Norwegian sample by 1)
         testing their ability to discriminate between fearful (n=151) and reg
         ular (n=160) patients, and 2) correlating them. Both instruments were
          highly reliable (Cronbach's alpha >0.90). Between 81% and 95% of the
          fearful and regular patients were correctly assigned to their approp
         riate groups with both instruments. It may thus be concluded that bot
         h instruments are valid. Also, the correlation between the instrument
         s was 0.68, indicating that they to a large extent seem to measure th
         e same concept. The most important predictor items for both instrumen
         ts were related to avoidance of dental treatment.
