Special Care Dentistry specializes in providing dental care for individuals with special needs and disabilities. These patient populations are unique and diverse! Our doctors have a combined 25 years of experience in providing care for patients with disabilities. They received formal training in residency on providing dental care and anesthesia for patients with special needs. They have extensive experience in caring for special need individuals with conditions such as Intellectual disability, Developmental Delay, Dementia, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Alzheimer, ADD and Down Syndrome to name a few. The special needs patient can be challenging to treat in a general dental office environment. At Special Care Dentistry we treat these patients depending on their physical (wheelchair bound, contractures, uncontrolled movements, etc.) and mental ability to cope with entering the dental office to receive dental care. Our facility is equipped with a state-of-the-art wheelchair lift for non-ambulatory patients making the experience easier and comfortable.
We offer a spectrum of sedation services at our office as some special needs patients require sedation during their dental procedures. The indications for sedation are also just as varied! How they are pre-medicated (to get into the dental chair and have an IV started), induced (put to sleep), maintained (stay asleep) and emerge (wake up) is tailored to their needs and dental treatment requirements. At Special Care Dentistry, our dentists and friendly staff serve patients throughout the Metroplex, and are here to help you or your loved ones receive the most optimal dental care.
Special Care Dentistry is a completely digital (paperless) office . We provide our patients and caregivers the convenience of a secure HIPAA compliant online portal through our website which enables them to complete all their necessary forms with a few simple clicks.
Special Care Dentistry utilizes digital radiography. This technology provides immediate high resolution images of your teeth as well as reducing patients exposure time to radiation.
