Context: Today, attention has increasingly been focused on the studies which include patient-centered consequences. Aims: The study aims to investigate the attitude of parents and children toward the application of stainless steel crown (SSC) on primary molars. Settings and Design: This cross-sectional descriptive study included eighty 4–6-year-old children having treated with SSC over the past 3–6 months. Subjects and Methods: Eventually, a validated child- and parent-centered self-report questionnaire was filled, having 14 questions about demographic information, six questions about childrens' attitude, and eight questions about parents' attitude. Statistical Analysis Used: Data analysis was conducted using t-test and one-way ANOVA at significant level P < 0.05. Results: In general, the score of children's attitude was positive, and the mean of attitude scores was obtained to be 9.9 ± 2.6; attitudes of 82.43% of children were good. Parents had neutral attitude; the mean of their attitude was obtained to be 20.2 ± 4.8. Only 53% of the parents scored good attitudes. Conclusions: The attitude score of children toward SSC was good and independent of age, gender, career, and education of the parents. Although the parents were not satisfied with how it appeared, the majority of them reported that their child had well accepted the crown.
