Abstract


The subject of child abuse and its long-term implications in adulthood has been widely studied in different areas of the world. Consequences may be mild or severe; disappear after a short period or last a lifetime. Also they could affect the individual physically, psychologically, the way they behave or a combination of all three ways. Child abuse encompasses physical, psychological, sexual abuse and neglect. Each type of child abuse has its symptoms and signs. There are four basic types of child abuse and neglect which allows the dentist to detect the manifestations of each type. In order to properly comply with the legal mandate for all health professionals to report suspected cases of child maltreatment, dentists must be cognizant of their responsibilities.
