Dr. Siegelman has performed approximately twenty thousand dental sedations and general anesthetics over the last twenty years.
Autism & Dentistry
Many people on the autistic spectrum have a difficult time dealing with dental environment. This is partly due to differences in how people on the spectrum experience, understand and interact with the world in general. It’s important to spend the time with the patient and caregivers, to determine their needs, and establish rapport. Preventive dental care and maintenance is emphasized so that patients need the least amount of invasive procedures possible.

Currently 5.3 million Americans are afflicted with Alzheimer’s, often leaving family members to make sure that their health and welfare are maintained. It’s very important not to underestimate the severe toll this disease leaves on close relatives and loved ones. Dr. Siegelman and his caring staff understand this and want to help alzheimer patients receive the best quality dental care possible.
