The Western Special Needs Dentistry Difference
Why choose Western Special Needs Dentistry as your dental provider? We believe that dentistry is secondary to connecting with people. Strong communication and listening skills are our key strength- we have longer appointments so we can fully understand the patient’s issues and prioritise treatment. At Western Special Needs Dentistry we understand that the tooth is in a mouth which is part of a person who is living in a certain environment- all factors are considered. We provide individual treatment plans that are firmly in the context of our patients’ abilities and medical considerations.
General dentists refer to Western Special Needs Dentistry because they know we will consider the patient’s individual situation such as oral hygiene, abilities, medical issues and, in some cases, social issues. We take time to discuss these important influencing factors and the treatment plan may change from the referring dentists original assessment. Planning and providing care often involves teamwork between us, the dental professionals, the patient and their family members/carers.
Western Special Needs Dentistry services are calm, gentle and positive, building long term relationships and focussing on the individual needs of the patient, family and carers. The people closest to the patient knows him/her the best!
