Ectodermal dysplasia is a clinically and genetically heterogenous group of disorder with about 192 rare traits having absent, incomplete or delayed development of one or more of the the four ectodermal appendages of hair, teeth, nails and sweet glands. Oral manifestations include agenesis of the primary and permanent teeth, which manifest clinically as hypodontia, or anodontia. A case of ectodermal dysplasia is reported with clinical presentation of prominent lips, nasal bridge and forehead, wrinkling and hyperpigmentation of peri orbital and peri oral regions. The patient also presented with hypodontia and conical incisors. Restoration of malformed teeth was carried out and missing teeth were replaced with removable prosthesis. Successful dental treatment involves a holistic approach with input from the various dental specialties
