to find out a dentist’s preferences and attitudes face to a deep carious lesion without symptomatology in young healthy patients. Materials and Methods: an electronic questionnaire was performed with google forms. Composed with 20 questions and sent by mail to 750 randomly sampled dentists and only 269 (35.8%) dentists participate in this study. Results: 43.5% choose completely removed of soft tissue despite the deepness of the cavity and the high risk of pulp exposure, 34.2% decide to practice stepwise technique and only 22.3% choose the selective removal technique. Most dentists whom attended post graduate training about actualities in cardiology and conservative dentistry choose selective removal therapy Conclusion: thanks to their unachievable properties, new bioactive products are making the practice of minimally invasive dentistry an alternative to maintain pulp vitality as long as possible and dentists are invited to follow new recommendations and adopt better practices.
