The analysis of the contents of 690 children’s drawings of the dentist’s office was carried out with the aim of determining the presence of »fear-inducing« and »encouraging« elements in these drawings. The results showed that only 9% of children drew encouraging elements like flowers, pictures, decorations, etc. The presence of fear-inducing elements appea­red to depend on: 1 children’s previous experience; 2 children’s age; 3 how the topic had been presented to chidren; and 4 what elements did actually exist in the dentist’s office.
