Working with Patients with Special Needs

May 7th, 2010

At Newhart Orthodontics, we work with patients of all walks of life. This includes patients with special needs and/or disabilities. In our office we are able to take excellent care of most adults and children with disabilities. Part of our secret is to have spacious reception and treatment area with plenty of room.

In the specific case of autism we recommend that parents be present at all times during examination and treatment. We always send photos of the doctor and photos of the office to the home prior to the first visit. This allow the parent to begin to introduce us to the child before the first visit. With patience, most children can be treated.

If you or your child have specific needs, give us a call and find out how best we can accommodate them!
