Dentin Dysplasia (DD) is a rare autosomal dominant anomaly that disturbs the formation of dentin in primary and/or permanent dentitions. This condition is classified into types I (radicular) and II (coronal) based on radiological findings. A case of DD type I in an 11-year old Iranian boy is presented and the clinical and radiological findings and selected treatment plan are discussed.
