Everyone needs to be able to have dental care.
However, some patients need to stay in their comfort zone to have their dental care provided at a better outcome.

Our dental practitioner will be happily provide the dental care for the patients with special needs at their most comfort zone for example, home visits and special health centres.

For some people, moving their arms or hands can be a problem, which makes effective cleaning difficult. It is important to reach all the areas of the mouth to clean effectively. A toothbrush with a small to medium head size with soft to medium bristles is usually recommended. There are special handgrips and other adaptations which can be fitted to manual toothbrushes to make them easier to hold.
