All too often, our patients end up saying two things:
1. I wish I had found you sooner, but I just didn’t know where to look.
2. I am so happy that we decided to do the treatment this way.
This is because access to high-quality dental care is a major issue in the state of Georgia when it comes to patients with special needs. Thousands of patients need to have dental treatment but simply aren’t able to sit in a dental chair and undergo the procedure.
We have routinely treated patients with autism, cerebral palsy, developmental delay, healthy children under the age of four whose behavior will not allow in office treatment, and healthy children who require a lot of dental treatment and who would be best served if all of it were done at one time.
Some patients are unable to receive dental care in the office because it isn’t safe, due to their medical condition. This is why we never force treatment in our office and are able to work with other medical institutions to find the best environment for these children.
If needed, we treat patients at either Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta or a pediatric surgery center. Whether it entails a cleaning, X-rays, fillings, crowns, or extractions, treatment can be completed in a very safe and comfortable way when the patient is in a hospital setting. This enables us to provide high-quality dental treatment in a comfortable manner.
