Dental Care for People with Special Needs

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.

I have had an abnormal fear of the dentist all my life which led to sever gum disease and I was terrified of what I needed to have done. Dr. Thurm took his time to explain everything that had to be done and he treated me with such kindness and care it was wonderful. I had extractions done, scaling and filings under anesthesia so I did not have to hear or feel what he was doing. I woke up and Dr. T…

I have an absolutely devastating fear of dentists, and had it not been for excruciating tooth pain, I was content to not visit a dental office. My first visit, while in such pain, was probably the most gentle experience I’ve had with a dental office. The staff was definitely sympathetic to my fear, and instead of treating it dismissively or by treating me like a child, they truly made me feel th…

I had some concerns about a dental issue. I received friendly, painless treatment as well as good information as to how to deal with my dental issue. I feel as though my next check-up will be very much improved. It was a great appointment.

If you have any fear of the dentist, this is the place to go. They do whatever is necessary to help you feel comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Thurm for dental work. I have had extensive work done by his team: partial bridge, crowns, root canals and fillings.

Excellent dentist and staff. Seen on time. State of the art equipment and most importantly, correct and good treatment with a conservative approach. Dr. Thurm’s approach is to assess the situation, range of options, whether the treatment is urgent or can wait and proceed from there. Everybody in this facility is both professional and friendly. I wish all businesses were like this.

THE best dentist in the area! I have been going to the Thurm Dental Group since my children were in grade school – they now have children of their own. The entire staff is terrific ( a special shout-out to Lisa!). I have had a lot of dental work done and have never experienced ANY discomfort or pain. Was always anxious about going to the dentist prior to my first visit to Thurm Dental. No more a…

It was the most positive dental cleaning appointment I have ever had! Carol was very gentle and thorough. I made my next appointment for six months, and now I will be calling to schedule a cleaning for my husband, on the same day.

Outstanding experience! I have avoided the dentist for 35 years due to fear. I honestly thought having my teeth taken care of was completely out of the question until I heard Dr. Thurm’s practice advertised on the radio. From the moment I walked in, everyone on his staff was incredibly friendly and were acutely aware of your trepidation. While in the room waiting to see the Dr. I felt myself beg…
