Bekes, Katrin/Schaller, Hans-Günter/Hirsch, Christian
Introduction: The aim of the present study was to examine the validity of the Child Perceptions Questionnaire (CPQ11-14) by exploring the association between oral health related quality of life (OHRQoL) with the overall well-being in a random population sample of 11- to 14-year-old children in Germany.
