Neurodiversity & Dental Care

Dental care is an essential part of maintaining good health. However, visiting the dentist can be an overwhelming experience for many people, especially those who are neurodiverse. Neurodiversity is the natural variation in human brain function and development, which includes conditions such as autism, ADHD, and dyslexia, among others. At our dental office, we recognize that every brain is wired in its own unique way and that everyone interprets and experiences their environments differently. Neurodiverse individuals may have difficulty with communication, sensory processing, and social interaction, which can make dental visits challenging.

Dr. Siegelman and his team are dedicated to providing a comfortable, positive experience for all our patients. We understand that the dental environment can be overwhelming for those with sensory processing sensitivities. That’s why we have taken steps to design our physical environment in a way that is accessible to everyone. We have thoughtfully chosen colors, lighting, and textures to create a calming space; we also provide noise-canceling headphones, sunglasses, and other accommodations, such as dental sedation, to help patients feel more at ease and relaxed during treatment.

In addition to our physical environment, our entire team strives to create an emotionally supportive atmosphere for our patients. We understand that some patients may feel anxious or overwhelmed about receiving dental care, and we are committed to helping them feel as comfortable as possible. We take the time to listen to our patient’s concerns and work with them to develop a personalized care plan that meets their unique needs.

At our NYC dental practice, we believe that everyone is unique and deserves to be treated with kindness and compassion. We embrace neurodiversity and understand that neurological differences should be accepted and celebrated. That’s why we provide a warm, welcoming environment for everyone to feel comfortable and relaxed. Our friendly dental team is dedicated to providing exceptional care that meets your individual needs. Whether you’re neurotypical or neurodivergent, we’re here to help you achieve your best smile ever!
