Facial Images Scale The Facial Images Scale (FIS) is an alternative picture scale that is quick to administer and also suitable for young children from age 3 years . Children are asked to choose one face from a row of five faces (a very unhappy face to a very happy face) that best matches how they are feeling at that time. The illustrations are clear, simple line drawing. The scores range from 1 to 5 (very happy to very unhappy). The FIS has also been used as the response format within measures of trait DFA, including the Smiley Faces Programme , the Revised Smiley Faces Programme  and the Modified Child Dental Anxiety Scale faces version .
For the dental professional, specialist equipment may also be required .

A fundamental difficulty with using behavioural approaches is that dentally fearful and anxious children can behave in very different ways within the dental environment.
