Conclusion

Dental professionals caring for patients with ADHD should exhibit compassion. They should understand that ADHD is a complex disorder that could require an adjustment in their treatment plan and daily schedule. They should not misinterpret a patient’s inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, or lack of homecare as a sign of defiance, but as a manifestation of the disease. We must learn how to manage these special patients and bring them optimal dental care.
