Children with MIH affected teeth can be impacted both functionally, aesthetically and psychosocially. Management of this condition presents several challenges to the dental team as there is limited evidence to support whether to restore or extract these teeth. 


To explore knowledge and attitudes of general dental practitioners in the UK and Australia regarding their views and experiences of managing MIH), compare findings and determine challenges and barriers to care and treatment planning from a general dental practitioners’ point of view from two different countries.

Who can participate?
