Introduction: Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) is a rare autosomal-dominant disorder that results in defective ossification. The gene responsible for pathogenesis has been mapped to the short arm of chromosome 6p21 core-binding factor alpha-1 or runt-related transcription factor-2. The condition being a complex congenital disorder with numerous skeletal and dental anomalies, its management depends considerably on the patient's ambitions, age, economic status and permanent dentition status, endodontic and periodontal health. Case Report: A 17-year-old female reported with complaint of misaligned teeth and desired orthodontic treatment. The patient had been diagnosed with CCD during childhood but, seemingly, with no previous management. Family wise patient's mother presented with features of CCD but no previous health records. A familial case report of CCD is presented with a brief explanation of various orthodontic-surgical methods carried out for its treatment Conclusion: CCD is a rare disorder, with no universally acknowledged treatment plan; hence, it is appropriate to involve a multidisciplinary team for its management.
