Patients with special needs are those who have physical, medical, intellectual or physical disabilities, and require special consideration when receiving dental treatment, Dr. Boldori extends his services to everyone.
These conditions can include people with mobility difficulties or hip fractures, Autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s, and many other conditions or injuries.
Patients with special needs have an increased need for preventive dental care; for the prevention of caries and periodontal diseases. Patients with special needs often face difficulties to care for their oral health, requiring help from others. The participation of family members or caregivers in their care is essential for the success of their dental treatment and for promoting the patient's oral health. The higher the level of dependence of the patient, the more care the caregiver should take to promote hygiene and preventive care.
Dr Boldori understands the challenges he must face when treating special needs patients. His first step is to build a positive rapport with the patient and family as well as gathering information about any medical conditions. It should be noted that many of these patients present with organic complications.
Dr Boldori finds great success in using techniques that integrate knowledge in dental, medical, psychological and personal care with his calming demeanour while performing dental treatment. His goal is to build trust with his patients and make every appointment a successful one.
