Understanding the Importance of Finding the Right Dentist for Special Needs Patients

While every dental patient has specific needs, not all of them have special needs. Such special needs patients are often much better off in the hands of an Orlando dentist who has abundant experience treating such patients. That’s exactly what you’ll find with Drs. Lawrence and Kyle Duffy and the rest of us here at the Center for Dental Anesthesia.

Special Needs Patients

There’s a vast variety of special needs patients, each of whom requires a special touch and special attention to provide them with the comfort and security required to improve their oral health. Examples of special needs patients include those:

• Who are especially anxious or fearful about going to the dentist
• With any level of autism or Asperger’s Syndrome
• With cerebral palsy
• Who have problems properly managing their weight
• With Down’s Syndrome
• With any type of brain or physical injury that resulted from a traumatic incident

Here we’d like to take the opportunity to share with you the fact that both Dr. Lawrence Duffy and Dr. Kyle Duffy have seven solid years of experience providing excellent dental care to patients with mental or physical health challenges that can make it otherwise difficult for them to be comfortable while in the dentist’s chair.

Center for Dental Anesthesia Is the Place to Go

Besides abundant experience, the Center for Dental Anesthesia also has the equipment, medical skills and knowledge of specialized care required for special needs patients. For instance, the patient might need general anesthesia to relax. Our office has board-certified MD anesthesiologists who have been properly educated on how to safely sedate patients and monitor them during their procedure.
