    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Many children with mild/moderate autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) receive care in general dental practice. We report a seven year old boy with ASD presenting with dental pain who auto-extracted one of his deciduous canines. Children with ASD may have hyposensitivity to pain and can exhibit unusual forms of self-injurious behaviour.
