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.

It’s very important not to underestimate the severe toll this disease leaves on close relatives and loved ones.
