Special Needs Dentist

Special Care Overview

Dr. Vandan Desai is a special needs dentist in San Antonio. He and his team are pleased to provide exceptional dental care for patients of all ages with special needs and/or complex medical conditions in an inviting and supportive atmosphere.

The Importance of Dental Care for Disabled Patients

Unfortunately, not all dental professionals have the additional training to handle patients with disabilities or complex medical conditions. This makes it much harder for this group of individuals to get the quality dental care they need. It’s especially important since about 26% of adults in the country have some type of disability, many of which also have poor oral hygiene.

What Conditions Can We Handle?

Our dentists are trained to offer exceptional care for those who may not be able to receive treatment in a traditional dental setting. We are uniquely qualified to care for many patients with disabilities, including those with:

  • Autism
  • Down syndrome
  • Fragile X
  • Prader-Willi
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Epilepsy and seizure disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Intellectual disabilities
  • Diabetes
  • Dental phobia
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Complex medical conditions

How We Keep Patients Calm

Whether a patient needs some extra time to familiarize themselves with the office or requires the full spectrum of specialized services, we provide it all! We offer sedation options to keep patients calm during their treatment. Our dentists can also perform dental procedures in-office or surgical settings based on patients’ needs.

We understand everyone has their own requirements, so we pride ourselves on customizing each treatment plan to meet each patient’s goal.
