The Early Childhood Oral Health Impact Scale (ECOHIS) is an assessment of the impact of oral health problems of preschoolers on the quality of oral health assessed by parents. The purpose of this study was to develop ECOHIS in the Indonesian version and evaluate the validity and reliability of ECOHIS among preschoolers. The Indonesian version of ECOHIS (I-ECOHIS) was developed through the Trans-cultural adaotation of psychometric analysis. The study was conducted to assess internal consistency, convergence validity, construct validity, and discriminant validity. Data were collected from 117 parents of children aged 3-5 years from six play-group schools in the Meuraxa sub-district of Banda Aceh city. Cronbach's alpha for the I-ECOHIS instrument is 0.874. On convergent validity and construct by using spearman analysis, the correlation value of the I-ECOHIS coefficient as a whole r 0.645 and 0. 654 and P ≤ 0,01. Discriminant validity, using Kruskal Wallis crucial p ≤ 0.05. I-ECOHIS is a valid measure and can be used to assess the quality of life of children aged 3-5 years in Indonesian children.
