Los Angeles and Orange County patients with special needs are those who have physical, medical, intellectual or physical disabilities, and require special consideration when receiving dental treatment. These terms and conditions can include people with Autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s, hip fractures and many other conditions or injuries that can make standard dental procedures more difficult to complete.
Why “In Motion Dentists”?
What makes In Motion Dentists unique is that our doctors extend their services to everyone. They understand the challenges they must face when treating special needs patients in Los Angeles and Orange County and have compiled a few techniques to help make every appointment a successful one. Many of the special needs population will be declined dental services because of the complexity or difficulty of their case. Many times, dental health professionals resort to sedation so the patient will comply during treatment. Although our doctors are certified to use oral sedation, they find greater success in their learned and acquired techniques and calming demeanor while performing dental treatment. Their goal is to build trust with patients and make a dental visit less intimidating than is typically seen.
A challenge that the special needs population face is the lack of qualified dentists who have the advanced training and experience needed to treat this segment of the population. Our doctors are California Board-Certified dentists and members of multiple dental health organizations. While our doctors were in dental school, many of the patients they treated had a disability. During that time, they discovered their passion and unique skill for treating this population. In their final year of dental school, they also took it upon themselves to shadow and work with a dentist that specialized in working with the special needs population. Since founding In Motion Dentists in 2014, Dr. Banner has expanded his practice and provides complete comprehensive dental services to anyone who needs in-home dental services in Los Angeles and Orange County.
