At The Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria VA, we know that dental care – and healthcare, in general – can be hard to access for patients with disabilities. It’s also worth noting that, even when the access is there, it can still be hard to find a practice that can ensure their comfort, dignity, and identity are respected.
This is why we focus on special needs dentistry. We believe it is our responsibility to create a space that is safe for every patient that walks through our door.
We do this through compassion, empathy, and a listening ear. Our team members are all trained in special needs dentistry. We provide private rooms for safety and comfort, a thorough analysis that takes into account you or your loved one’s medical history, and a communicative, judgment-free atmosphere where our patients can share their needs and goals.
And when we say we want to treat everyone, we mean everyone. Below you will find a list of the different special needs conditions affecting individuals we have cared for in the past. Remember: this list is not all-inclusive. If you don’t find you or your loved one’s condition on this list, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit. We are always ready for new patients, regardless of their medical history!
