That the speech clinician can play an important role in the identification and referral of clients with certain syndromes is exemplified in this case report. Speech and structural deviations in a client seen in the Osseo, Minnesota, Public Schools prompted referral to the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. Although the structural deviations were of minimal significance for speech production, the combination of physical findings led to the diagnosis of a rare syndrome of oligodontia, taurodontism, and facial features of ectodermal dysplasia. The dental and genetic significance of these findings are discussed.
