Treatment decisions regarding caries and dental developmental defects in children a questionnaire-based study among Norwegian dentists- When dentists are treating children with dental caries or DDDs, they must decide the most appropriate treatment in each case. The results of the present study showed a notable disparity between clinician’s treatment choices.
