Patients with Disabilities

Receiving adequate dental care can pose a challenge for patients with disabilities, but this shouldn’t be the case. Suppose you or a family member has physical, emotional, or other disabilities that make dental visits more challenging. In that case, San Antonio dentist for disabled adults, Dr. Nikhaar Keshwani and her family dental team are more than willing to accommodate your needs. At Babcock Family Dental, we warmly welcome all patients and strive to do our best to ensure that everyone receives comfortable, consistent, and superior dental care at our dental clinic on Babcock Rd. Here are a few methods that we employ when caring for patients with disabilities:

  1. Offering Compassionate Care : If you or someone you love has a disability, you might understand that maintaining oral and overall health can be challenging. For instance, some patients with disabilities might have dexterity limits and cannot brush and floss thoroughly without the help of others. Dr. Keshwani understands that caring for patients with special needs requires more compassion and understanding and less judgment.
  2. Accommodations & Modifications:

    Our family dental team is open and willing to accommodate and modify dental appointments to ensure that all patients receive excellent oral health care.

    For example, our Babcock Rd office is wheelchair accessible. If needed, we can conduct dental appointments in personal wheelchairs instead of dental chairs for a more comfortable experience.

    On the other hand, if a patient has difficulty staying in their seat for long periods of time, this can pose significant difficulty when undergoing lengthy dental surgeries, like getting dental implants and implant-supported restorations. In these cases, we offer sedation dentistry services and other techniques to make the dentist’s chair more bearable.
  3. Personalized Treatment Plans:

    A treatment plan is like a roadmap, giving our family dentistry team guidance and direction. Because caring for patients with disabilities is highly individualized, it can sometimes feel like taking a road trip to a place we’ve never visited. While it would be nice if the journey through life’s obstacles came with a map or GPS, we strive to plan as much as possible to ensure that patients reach their destination in oral health.

    A treatment plan helps our family dental team know if you have accomplished your oral health goals and which ones need to be met. If we come to a fork in the road, we always partner with caretakers and champion patients with disabilities so they can get where they need to go.
