Recall Rate of Children with Special Health Care Needs Receiving Dental Treatment under General Anesthesia at QSNICH
Keywords:General anesthesia, Dental treatment, Children with special health care need, Recall rate
The objective of this study was to evaluate the recall rate of children with special health care need after dental treatment under general anesthesia over a 24-month period. Retrospective data of patients receiving dental treatment under general anesthesia at the dental department of Queen Sirikit National Institute of Child Health, during January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2016 was collected from the patient’s medical records. The data included general information, oral health information before receiving dental treatment, dental treatment and follow-up information. Data were analyzed using descriptive and Chi square statistics. All 36 patients, with an average age of 5.6 ± 2.3 years, had underlying diseases and/or were patients with special health care needs. 58.6% returned for the one-week postoperative visit. The return rate for the 3, 6, 12 and 24-month followed up appointment were 70.8%, 64.7%, 69.2% and 83.3% respectively. 22.2% of treated patients were regular visiting. Factors that may affect continuity of visiting were medical disease and living location.
