This presentation provides an overview of eating disorders and their early warning signs, plus insight into the psychological aspects of eating disorders. It includes recommendations for in-office care, and oral health counseling to minimize complications and damage to the hard and soft oral tissues, in order to keep patients pain-free, and improve quality of life. Communications strategies are discussed, which could facilitate disclosure and early medical referral.

• Discuss the pathogenesis of eating disorders
• Discuss the psychological and social factors
