Dentistry for the Developmentally Disabled

Everyone deserves a healthy, beautiful smile, especially those that may have a difficult time caring for their own teeth. At our dental practice in Elk Grove, we offer specialized care for our developmentally disabled patients and those with special needs. Dr. Dalla and our team are sensitive to the needs of all our patients and we offer a calm, caring atmosphere for those who need extra attention when receiving their dental treatments.

Dental care for those with special needs is crucial. Many of our patients have medical conditions that make it hard to maintain good oral health. Regular checkups and cleanings, along with needed dental treatments can help keep teeth and gums in a healthy state, especially when home oral hygiene is difficult to perform. Our team is experienced with working with the developmentally disabled and others with special needs to give them excellent care for their oral health.

Hospital Dentistry & Home Visits

In addition to providing excellent care for our special needs patients at our office, we also offer specialized care when needed. It can be difficult for families to come into our office for all their dental needs. Talk to us about your situation and how we can help meet your needs. Home visits for general care can be arranged.

In some cases, dental treatments may need to be performed while the patient is under sedation. We offer hospital sedation when necessary to ensure our special needs patients get the care they need in a safe and supervised environment. This can help remove the anxiety that some patients may have when receiving dental care and allows us to completely care for their oral health while they are under sedation.

If you have a family member that is developmentally disabled or has special needs, contact Ora Dentistry today to schedule an appointment with our compassionate team. We have specialized care available for those that need it to get the dental treatments they need for a healthy, beautiful smile.

I've always been afraid of going to the dentist but I had the best dental experience here! The staff is very friendly and helpful and Dr. Dalla was great. He explained the procedures to be done and was gentle when it came to my worst fear at the dentist---numbing shots!!! I didn't feel anything! I'm definitely not afraid to go to the dentist anymore! Thank you Ora Dentistry!

Called to make an apt yesterday, I was so happy they where able to get me In the same day! As soon as you walk in you feel like your being greeted by a friend. The staff and doctor are amazing. Injections where painless and I really felt like I was cared for. I am extremely satisfied with my cleaning! My teeth look pretty amazing!! I give this place a 10/10. I look forward to my next dental visit.

I was impressed the minute I walked into office. Just so tasteful and beautiful. As for the Dr., he took the time to explain and show me the one problem he discovered albeit a big one. I did appreciate the time he took with me and will have no problem making him my dentist from now on.
