Special Needs Dentistry

American Dental knows that caring for those with special health care needs takes a high level of knowledge, comprehensive understanding and an immense amount of compassion.

Special Needs Dentistry

Special needs dentistry is a relatively new and upcoming specialized type of care that is currently offered here at American Dental of Fitzgerald. There are millions of children and adults alike that have special health care needs.

These may include physical conditions, medical issues, developmental problems, and conditions that are cognitive in nature. Examples of conditions that classify as special needs include autism, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Down syndrome, craniofacial differences, and injuries impacting the spinal cord.

Special Needs Issues Means Special Skill and Special Care is Required

When a person has special needs, they need special care — especially in terms of dentistry — as these issues could make even the most standard of all dental procedures more challenging to perform.

We here at American Dental of Fitzgerald know and understand the fact that caring for those with special health care needs takes a high level of knowledge, comprehensive understanding, and an immense amount of compassion.

We Tailor Procedures to Meet Individual Needs

Our focus is not on figuring out how we can create standard procedures in special needs dentistry, but rather, how we can focus on our meeting the unique needs and work with the unique limitations of each and every single one of our special needs patients.

Special Needs Means Special Attention and Care From Us

We take the time and make the effort to work with each patient on a person-to-person basis. If special needs dentistry is required, you will receive a special appointment that includes longer consultation times and a special auxiliary staff that will aid in all aspects of the special needs dentistry that is required.

Regardless of special needs, our dedicated team of professionals are able to successfully complete both simple and comprehensive dental procedures on all patients and regardless of age or disability, we have the expertise, tools, technology, and the state-of-the-art facility to ensure optimal oral health for all of our patients.

We Also Provide Resources to Help You at Home

In addition to special needs dentistry services, we also provide families and/or caregivers with educational tools and resources to help optimize the oral health care of the individual suffering from a special health care condition.
