Abstract

This present study aimed to assess the oral health-related quality of life of children with cleft lip and palate and their relatives. One hundred and fifty children, aged from 2 to 6 years, will be selected. The sample will be divided into two groups: Group I - children with cleft lip/palate; Group II - children without cleft lip/palate. The children's quality of life will be evaluated through applying an oral health-related questionnaire Brazilian version of the Early Childhood Oral Health Impact Scale (B-ECOHIS). The parents will fill in a questionnaire comprising 13 multiple-choice questions. Total scoring will be obtained by the sum of the scores of all questions. The greater the scoring, the greater is the impact on quality of life. The statistical analysis will be performed through appropriate non-parametric tests, with level of significance of 5% (p<0.05). In the description of the results will be used tables and graphs with absolute and relative values.
