Description:

The purpose of this study was to determine the compliance of parents for bringing the child back to the dentist for follow up dental care to aid in the decision making for care provided to the children of low income families requiring general anesthesia. The dental records of 244 children of low-income families were examined. Forty-three percent of the patients did not return for follow-up dental care. Consideration should be given to modifying treatment plans to include full coverage restorations and possibly delaying treatment before the eruption of the primary second molars
