The Impact of Childhood Sexual Abuse on Women's Dental Experiences.
Hays, Kate F.; Stanley, Sheila F.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v5 n4 p65-74 1996
Compared the dental experiences of 132 women with a history of sexual abuse to 49 women reporting no such history. Findings show that a history of abuse, especially the severity of abuse, predicted different patterns in making and keeping dental appointments, stress-related dental problems, and post-traumatic-stress-disorder-type symptoms while at the dentist.
