Face is the index of the mind and everyone today is obsessed with shinier and perfectly aligned teeth that makes a person more noticeable.. Up to last two decades, people were not showing much interest in taking care of oral dental hygiene. However, in the recent years, people are taking care of the same right from childhood. Pedodontics is the branch of Dentistry that deals with care and treatment of children's teeth. A descriptive research was carried out by collecting data from secondary sources from Pedodontics Department of well known (teaching) Dental Hospital in Manipal. The data was analyzed by using statistical tools and conclusions were drawn. It was concluded that less percentage of people give priority to oral dental hygiene and go for pediatric dental check up. Further, it can be concluded that changing food habits may probably result in some more dental problems.
