The aim of the study is to present the oral findings of a patient with Apert Syndrome who applied to our clinic due to toothache. Apert syndrome is a sporadic disease characterized by craniosynostosis and craniofacial deformities, syndactyly in the hands and feet, and dental anomalies. In the oral examination of an 11-year-old female patient with a complaint of

toothache, deep caries in teeth number 75 and 85, root particles of tooth number 84 and dentin caries in teeth 36-46 were detected. In addition, it was observed that teeth number 12-22 were hypodontic, had Class III bites with dental crowding and severe maxillary stenosis. In the treatment planning of the patient with high cooperation, it was decided to extract the teeth number 75,84,85 and to restore the teeth number 36 and 46. Rehabilitation of the skeletal jaw problem was recommended by consulting the patient's orthodontic department.
