Abstract: Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is a relatively common psychiatric condition in which the individual is disproportionately concerned about an aspect of his/her appearance. People with BDD are highly likely to seek cosmetic dental treatment. However, the provision of such treatment is contra-indicated. This article will identify simple techniques for practitioners to screen for and manage patients with BDD.

Clinical relevance: This article addresses the management of patients with a specific psychiatric illness who are likely to present for cosmetic dental treatments.

Author notes: Adina Rosten, Year 5 BDS Student (email: adina.rosten@kcl.ac.uk) and Tim Newton, BA, PhD, King’s College London Dental Institute, Floor 26, Tower Wing, Guy’s Hospital, London SE1 9RT, UK.

Objective: To identify and manage patients with a specific psychiatric illness who are likely to present for cosmetic dental treatments.
