Itani Dental is San Francisco’s Premier Special Needs Dentist
Itani Dental in San Francisco announces special care dentistry as one of its one-of-a-kind services.
People with disabilities or special needs often have a hard time finding healthcare geared specifically to them. Itani Dental is filling that gap in dental care, one patient at a time.
The office gladly accepts patients with physical and mental disabilities and illnesses. The staff is well-equipped to handle any situation that may arise with a special needs client, including mobility solutions or the need for a little extra patience.
Patients with the following conditions sometimes need special accommodations during their dental appointments:
- Mental disabilities
- Mental illnesses
- Behavioral issues
- Physical illnesses
- Advanced age
Itani Dental’s special needs dentistry includes a wide range of patients with varying needs. Below are a few examples of their special needs dentistry services:
- Elderly patients are sometimes dealing with declining health, diminishing vision, or a decline in hearing.
- Dr. Itani and staff make house calls for patients with mobility issue within a 50-mile radius.
- Patients with autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, cerebral palsy, or Down Syndrome may have difficulty sitting still during their procedures or not be physically able to do so.
- Patients with extreme fear or phobia of the dentist and those with severe gag reflexes dread regular dentist appointments. The staff of Itani Dental knows how to put every patient at ease.
In many situations (like the ones above), it can be dangerous for a patient to undergo even the simplest treatment, such as a bi-annual cleaning.
These patients usually have a condition that makes it impossible for them to be still during treatment, thus compromising their safety, or they are extremely fearful and can’t undergo treatment while awake.
Itani Dental takes appointments for special needs services with time allotted for any special circumstances that must be met. Travel time for the team, bonding with new patients, and anesthesia are just a few considerations that may be taken into account.
When necessary, Itani Dental offers IV sedation or general anesthesia options to be used in hospital or dental office settings.
Our staff is hospital credentialed and works with a team of highly qualified specialists including anesthesiologist who can meet your every need.
Here’s more information on the different sedation options Itani Dental offers.
Itani Dental practices general, cosmetic and restoration dentistry. But what sets this office apart is the way the doctors and staff cater to those with special needs. No other dentist office in the area offers such a wide range of special needs dentistry.
