Creative Dentistry, P.C. understands the arduous challenges involved in caring for patients with severe disabilities. Just meeting the basic necessities of survival can be daunting.  Disabilities or mental illnesses most often complicate or prevent patients from achieving good dental hygiene.  Brushing teeth can be difficult or impossible because of the individual’s inability to understand or be receptive to the assistance of their caregivers or their dental hygienist.  The stress associated with taking a person with a disability to the dentist is often correlated to the deterioration of the individual’s oral health care.
