Dentin dysplasia (DD) is an autosomal dominant disorder affecting both the deciduous and permanent dentitions. The affected individual has normal size, shape, and color of crown, and pattern of eruption but abnormally short and stunted roots leading to premature exfoliation. DD is classified into two types: DD type I - radicular DD and DD type 2 - coronal DD. We present a case of DD type Ia in a 12-year-old boy, highlighting the clinical, radiographic, and histopathologic features with a brief note on treatment and preventive care.
