The Special Needs Dentistry Process

Our approach to dentistry is comprehensive. We’ll first begin with a thorough assessment of the patient’s oral health, taking into account medical history and any disabilities or special needs.

We’ll then complete an oral exam to identify potential oral health issues.

After the exam, we’ll discuss findings and create a personalized treatment plan, which may include modifications to the dental environment, sedation options, and specialized techniques to ensure comfort and safety during procedures.

The Benefits of Special Needs Dentistry

Finding a special needs dentist near you offers numerous benefits to individuals with unique healthcare requirements. At Dallas Center for Oral Health and Wellness, our team is credentialed with the Medical City Hospital in Dallas. With hospital privileges, we can treat patients in a hospital operating room utilizing general anesthesia by a board-certified anesthesiologist. While not every dental treatment may need anesthesia, having the option is powerful. With special needs dentistry, patients and caregivers can feel empowered about good dental care and well-being.
