Roughly 20% of the population is considered to have a disability of one type or another. Within this population, you will find individuals with physical limitations, traumatic or psychological disabilities, medical complications, developmental issues, cognitive impairments and behavioral or emotional disorders.
Finding a dentist who is skilled in working with patients with disabilities can sometimes be a daunting task. Most dentists can accommodate mildly disabled patients. However, it sometimes requires more compassion, understanding and adjustments to the environment to accommodate more severe cases of disability. At Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, we are ready to meet the needs of patients with all levels of disability.
Compassionate Oral Care for the Disabled
In some instances, a disabled patient may require special modifications in order for proper dental care to be administered. Special treatment plans may need to be put in place, and physical accommodations may need to be implemented to serve some patients with disabilities.
We are prepared to do whatever is necessary to provide our patients with disabilities a relaxed and comfortable experience while undergoing dental treatment. We are aware of the barriers to proper dental care for patients with disabilities and work with patients to overcome those barriers. Everyone needs and deserves adequate dental care.
