Dental care of hemodialysis and renal-transplant patients involves various psychological parameters. Their basic illness affects their dental anxiety, self-image, active motivation to cope with difficulties, and appreciation of oral health. These parameters were measured by four specific questionnaires in fifty subjects: 25 renal patients and 25 matched controls. Renal patients showed significantly less dental anxiety than did controls, and also less concern about oral health. Patients' coping with difficulties was equal to controls, while their self-image was even more stable. The unusual findings in these patients demonstrate the importance of dentists' cooperation with nephrologists and psychiatrists.
