Although everyone has oral care needs, studies show that people who have a disability also often have additional oral health care needs. Special Care Dentistry is the branch of dentistry that provides oral care services for people with medical, social, psychological, or physical conditions that make it necessary to modify the normal course of dental treatment. Drakeshire Dental has an unwaivering commiitment to provide top-quality dental care regardless of the patient's ability to ambulate. Our facility surpasses the requirements set by the Americans for Disabilities Act (ADA). Not only are all cubicles spacious, we are uniquely equipped with two built-in transfer lifts.
Since all patients also need to remain still without sudden movements during treatment, we offer different sedation options that can be helpful, if needed. One of the options is IV Sedation dentistry, also known as "sleep dentistry".
Our staff also has the increased awareness and attention during all dental procedures for patients with special needs. Please visit us if you or someone you know has any of the following:
We also use cutting-edge innovations in dental equipment, requiring less time in the dental chair, causing less discomfort and creating satisfying results. Our dentists are proud to be members of the Special Care Dentistry Association, and the International Association for Disabled Oral Health . We are also members and support several foundations that provide assistance to those in need.
