Special Issue Information

Pediatric dentists should pay regard to the background and necessity of behavior management and should be well aware, and change if needed, of their perceptions towards children and consider personal or dental visit characteristics of children. The behavior of children in dental clinics is a reflection of their cognitive development, familial and environmental interactions along with cultural factors. Thus, behavior management in pediatric dentistry is always in dynamic and changing way.
