Background: There are a lot of questions in the mind of parents related to primary teeth. Various myths are also prevalent in the society about deciduous dentition. As a pediatric dentist, we come across various questions that are repeatedly asked, other than the chief complaint of the patient. No study has been conducted till date to address such queries. The current study highlights the major queries of parents related to their child\'s oral health. Objectives: The purpose of the study is to evaluate the most frequently asked questions by aediatric patient\'s parents in day-to-day practice apart from the chief complaint and to compare the queries of urban and rural population. Method: A sample size of 200 was taken for the study. Parents/attendants of the patients were given a questionnaire which consisted of queries of parents other than chief complain. The data were analyzed to find out what most of the parents want to know from a pediatric dentist about their child\'s dentition. Results: Based on the survey, we were able to evaluate the most common questions about child\'s oral health and it was observed that there is a difference in the queries of parents among the rural and the urban population. Conclusion: The role of a pediatric dentist is of the utmost importance in creating awareness among patients and their parents about oral health and the importance of primary teeth.
