Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This observational survey aims to find out the reasons patients and their guardians have in seeking treatment for the orthodontic problems the patients suffer from. The survey is questionnaire based and is a one time survey with no follow up. The semi-structured questionnaire used was designed specifically for this study. The participants were handed out the questionnaires and helped by the principal investigator herself in answering the questions, whilst the patients and their guardians were waiting in the patient waiting area before the first session of their orthodontic treatment. Each participant took around 3-5 minutes to answer the questionnaire.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of the study is to find out the reasons a patient may have for seeking treatment for her orthodontic (crooked teeth) problems and the reasons a guardian of that patient may have for the same. Having knowledge of such reasons could facilitate provision of better service honed to meet those aspirations. This is a purely observational survey to collect data on interviewer assisted questionnaires only once when the patient first presents to Dhaka Dental College Hospital.
