Autism & Dental Care

Description

Going to the dentist can be a cause for anxiety for most of us, but it’s a very different feeling for those with autism. Our dental experts Dr. Greg Grillo and Dr. David Hudnall have spent countless hours helping patients and caregivers prepare for upcoming dental visits as well as helping them with tips and techniques that ensure proper oral health habits in the future.

Patients with special needs often have difficulty staying still and allowing the dentist to do what’s needed, which is why a loved one should always be present. Everyone needs a “figurative” hand to hold sometimes, especially those who fear the dentist, and it’s no different for patients with autism.
