It is important that patients with special needs are able to visit a dentist who will make special accommodations to make them feel comfortable.
We offer special needs dentistry to patients at our convenient Honolulu, HI, office to help each and every patient enjoy the benefits of a healthy smile.
We have made our Honolulu offices fully accessible for patients with physical special needs.Special needs dentistry aims to handle the distinctive concerns of these patients to help them get the dental treatments they need.This could involve helping a patient with a physical impairment learn how to brush his or her teeth more effectively or modifying a dental treatment to keep a patient with a developmental condition more comfortable. Patel and our team work to ensure that those with special needs can undergo the same cleanings, examinations, and procedures as all of our other patients.If so, the individual will be provided with necessary forms/questionnaires for the health care provider to complete.A reasonable accommodation under the ADA and ADAAA is an ongoing process.
