Small is the number of studies published in the scientific literature which deal on surveys done in our country about the opinions
and habits of dentists and in particular of Spanish orthodontists. For this reason, we decided to carry out a survey in the
Department of Orthodontics of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry of Valencia. This survey dealt with aspects such as clinical
management, and with diagnosis and orthodontics treatment options. The results of the 70 surveys collected show very interesting
results and close to those obtained in a similar survey done in the USA. The making up of surveys via Internet about different
aspects of scientific interest to know the situation of the professionals, as well as its opinions and personal experiences should be
done as a periodic manner.
