Special Needs Patients

Everyone deserves a healthy smile and, at Columbia Dental Center, we welcome all patients to our office for excellent care. It is our pleasure to care for patients with special needs that need a dental team that is compassionate and equipped to handle specialty dental care. Many of our special needs patients require sedation or even hospital dental care which we have available to ensure they get the best oral health care.

It is vital that those who have special needs receive professional dental care treatments. Many have difficulty performing their daily oral hygiene, making it even more important that they receive routine cleanings and checkups at a dental office. Our team is sensitive to all our patients’ needs and we take extra care to work with any patient that has disabilities to ensure they get the highest level of dental treatments.

Dentistry for the Developmentally Disabled

Not all dentists have the training or ability to perform dental treatments for the developmentally disabled. Not only does it require compassion and understanding, it can also mean using specialized techniques to perform dental treatments. We offer sedation dentistry which can relax our patients that are developmentally disabled while we perform their dental services. In some cases, hospital dentistry is required for the safety of our special needs patients and we offer that at Columbia Dental Center as well.

Our goal at Columbia Dental Center is to provide the highest level of care for all our patients. We especially enjoy the opportunity to give those that need specialized care access to a caring, compassionate dental experience. If you or a loved one has special needs, please contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Leppo. We are happy to provide you with the specialized dental care you or your family member needs.
