To measure individual oral health perception toward daily activities capability, an evaluation of Oral Health Related Quality of Life is made. The most commonly used instrument is the short version of Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP-14), developed by Slade. This study aimed to validate an Indonesian short version of OHIP-14 in elderly population. The original English version of OHIP-14 was translated into Indonesian language (OHIP-14ID) and applied in the elderly populations in government nursing homes. Reliability was examined by test-retest with evaluated by Cronbach's alpha and average inter-item correlation coefficients. Convergent validity was established by examining relationships between the OHIP domain, total OHIP scores, and self-reported satisfaction on general dentition, chewing function, and aesthetics. Discriminant validity was examined by comparing OHIP scores and dental status. Internal consistency coefficient of the total OHIP-14ID score as absolute agreement was 0.770. The Cronbach's alpha value for total OHIP-14ID scores was 0.932. All domain of OHIP-14ID confirmed significant value. This study suggested that the OHIP-14ID can be used as a valid and reliable instrument for evaluating the impacts of oral condition to quality of life in epidemiological studies among the elderly in Indonesia.
