|Samenvatting||Objective: To investigate the oral health–related quality of life (OH-RQoL) of Dutch cleft lip and
palate patients. It was hypothesized that (1) there is no difference between cleft patients’ and their
parents’ reports of patients’ OH-RQoL; (2) there are no gender differences; (3) there are no
differences in OH-RQoL between cleft patients with regard to their symptoms; and (4) there is no
difference between patients above and below 12 years of age.
Materials and Methods: The sample consisted of 122 patients with clefts (age range, 8–15 years)
and their parents. Respondents were recruited from the cleft palate team of Amsterdam. They
completed the Child Oral Health–Related Quality of Life questionnaire (COHIP). Items were
divided into five different subscales, and scores on all subscales were compared between and
Results: Patients’ and parents’ perceptions differed significantly on three of the five subscales.
Girls and boys did not differ significantly with regard to their perception of reported OH-RQoL. The
cleft lip and cleft lip and alveolus [CL(A)] subgroup scored significantly higher on the functional wellbeing
subscale. The cleft patients aged 12 years and older scored significantly lower on the
emotional well-being and oral symptoms subscales when compared with their younger peers.
Conclusions: Only the second hypothesis was not rejected in this study. This means that parents
are not interchangeable with regard to reporting on their children’s perceptions related to OHRQoL,
that OH-RQoL changes with age, and that it is important that subgroups are respected
when investigating OH-RQoL in cleft patients.|
