ABSTRACT
Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder(ADHD) is the most common psychiatric disorder in school-age children which is increasing gradually. It is hard for ADHD children to focus on particular stimulus for a long time. ADHD children are characterized by hyperactivity which shows in behaviors like, talking too much, getting up from their seats without permission, running around, keep on moving their arms and legs. ADHD children have problems with impulse controlling that they tend to fall and get into an accident very often. Thus dentist's attention and care must increase when dental treatment is performed with ADHD children since behavior control, oral hygiene problems, and trauma might be expected. By using sedative drugs and psychological behavior control, chief complaint was resolved in a 8-years-old female diagnosed for ADHD.
