Description

Patients with exceptional needs are not just those with physical impairments. With the increasing number of diagnoses, it is more likely we’ll see patients who have a form of mental illness, autism spectrum disorder or ADHD. Developing a greater understanding of these conditions will enable dental hygienists to offer the best care specific to patients’ individual needs. Through nonjudgmental and supportive care, dental hygienists can provide evidence-based, patient-specific care that will give patients improved oral health and, in turn, greater overall health. After reading this article, dental hygienists should feel more confident about providing dental care for patients with exceptional needs.
