Are you seeking a dentist who is specially trained to help adults or teenagers with special needs? Call our dental office in Collingswood, NJ today. The phone number is (856) 335-1775.
Dr. Arthur Thurm has more than 35 years of experience providing compassionate dental care to people who have physical, medical, developmental, or cognitive conditions. For example, our team is trained to help people who have:
- Developmental disorders including Autism, Down Syndrome, and processing disorders
- Physical disorders including Parkinson’s disease, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, cancer, chronic asthma, Cystic Fibrosis, epilepsy, arthritis, spinal cord injuries, or other physical conditions
- Behavioral/Emotional disorders including Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and anxiety disorders
- Sensory-related disorders including blindness and hearing problems
It can be difficult for people with special needs to lie still or follow directions in a traditional dental office. At Thurm Dental, we offer multiple types of sedation, including sleep dentistry for patients over 16 years old, to ensure your family member is comfortable throughout the entire procedure.
Our office is one of the only general dentistry practices in New Jersey that provides out-patient anesthesia services. After the initial evaluation, we will determine if we can safely treat your loved one at our dental office. If not, we will make every attempt to locate another dental practice that can perform hospital-based dental care. Our first priority is always the patient’s safety and well-being.
Call our team today at (856) 335-1775 to schedule a consultation. We look forward to seeing how we can help your family member smile more.
