Special care dentistry is a specific area of the dental profession focussing upon the oral care of those who have physical or psychiatric issues and those who are handicapped with either a physical or intellectual disability.
Most dental clinics in the UK are trained and proficient with dealing with those who may require special care dentistry services. However if for whatever reason you and the person in need of oral support cannot make it to these clinics, due to various medical reasons and/or disability, the dentist should refer you to another appropriate special needs dentist.
All special needs dentists and special care dentistry professionals take an extra three years of training at a postgraduate level after completing a dental degree; so each professional you may face is exceptionally well trained and have had experience in special care dentistry to some level before. All areas of dentistry from orthodontics to restorative dentistry can be performed by someone who has been trained in special care dentistry.
A special care dentistry expert will also give comfort to the patient, and any carer present as you’ll know the patient is in the best hands possible and it will let your mind rest.
