Special Needs can mean anything from anxiety and fear to intellectually or developmentally disabled and medically compromised patients. Our office is sensory-integrated and wheelchair accessible.

 

Intellectual disability (ID) is a term for a group of conditions that start in early childhood and continue throughout the lifespan that include cognitive as well as adaptive differences. Watch this video to learn more from Dr. Alicia Bazzano, Chief Health Officer at Special Olympics.

Special Olympics Guides

Our supporters at the Smile Generation teamed up with Special Olympics to create educational resources for patients and caregivers to use at home. With proper at-home care and routine dental visits, we know that all patients can achieve proper oral health care.

What makes us unique?

We believe in providing each patient with a unique experience that best suits their individual needs.

One-on-one visits, the patient and team get acquanted and comfortable
Sensory-integrated rooms with televisions on the ceiling
Wheelchair accessible
Room with two chairs to provide space for modeling
Private operatories with a door on each room to allow for an individualized experience
Our team’s goal is to fit in the patient’s theoretical box and ensure they never feel confined to one that isn’t the right fit

Why the dandelion?

Finding access to acceptable dental care has proven difficult or impossible for many of the 52 million plus people with disabilities in the U.S. But just as dandelions thrive in difficult conditions, our wish is to help people with special needs thrive even more with healthier, happier smiles.
