Body dysmorphic disorder is a psychiatric condition that affects about 2% of the population. The objective of this article was to create awareness among orthodontists of this disorder and offer guidelines for its detection. As clinicians providing cosmetic services, orthodontists are likely to have patients with body dysmorphic disorder requesting treatment.
