Autism & Dentistry
Many people on the autistic spectrum have a difficult time dealing with dental environment.

Preventive dental care and maintenance is emphasized so that patients need the least amount of invasive procedures possible.

What our Rochester Dental Patients Say..
“Dr. Siegelman is a fantastic dentist: he will go out of his way to make sure you are numb for any procedure, and also offers dental sedation. His staff is excellent, and Melissa is the best, gentlest, hygienist ever. They specialize in patients who hate the dentist, have difficulties being treated, and/or have dental related trauma. Personally, dentists could never get me numb and would just tell me to hang in there. Ouch!!! Dr. Siegelman just filled three plus cavities for me last week and did a great job. No pain at all for one of the teeth, and only very very minor pain for the other side. He has state of the art equipment and can accommodate allergies including latex and gluten. I highly recommend him.”
“Dr. Siegelman is the best dentist you will ever meet. He is knowledgeable, compassionate and truly a wonderful dentist. I’ve been a patient for over 20 years and I always feel I’m in the best hands. Before meeting Dr. Siegelman, I was terrified to visit any dentist. The mere thought of a dental exam would make my anxiety soar and I would feel sick. I still remember the first time I arrived at his office and was greeted by his kind and patient staff. They could see that I was anxious and immediately put me at ease. Dr. Siegelman’s calm demeanor helped me relax and I knew I was in the right place. Over the years he has help me to conquer my dental fears and I no longer dread going to the dentist….as long as its Dr. Siegelman! P.S. Don’t forget to schedule a cleaning with Melissa, she is the best hygienist ever!”
“My friend recommended me to Dr. Siegelman. Said that he’s the best and I should really check him out so I did- this was almost a year ago- and I couldn’t agree more with my friend. Siegelman is very precise and skilled. You can just tell he has confidence in what he’s doing. I’m really happy for the recommendation because I no longer have to dread going to the dentist. ”
