Blepharo-Cheilo-Dontic (BCD) syndrome is a rare condition characterised by abnormalities of the eyelid lip and teeth. A 12-year-old girl with BCD syndrome presented at the Dental Hospital following referral from the multi-disciplinary cleft lip and palate clinic. She had skeletal Class III relation, with left posterior cross bite, occlusal contacts on the second permanent molars with poor oral hygiene. The permanent units missing were 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 21, 22, 25, in the upper arch and 35, 34, 32 44 and 45 in the lower arch. This patient presented a complex aesthetic problem, which through multidisciplinary care resulted in a satisfactory aesthetic outcome. In this case report we present the clinical management and the role of the overdenture in her dental management.
