Children with special needs have a higher risk of dental problems like dental caries, periodontal disease, dental erosions, malocclusion ,bruxism, enamel defects ,creating significant morbidity that can further affect their wellbeing and negatively impact their quality of life. This results from multiple factors including Intellectual disability, malnourishment, motor and coordination difficulties, gastro oesophageal reflux disease, drooling, as well as limited oral care and hygiene. Screening for dental disease should be part of the initial assessment of any child with multiple disability.

In NIARC, we have a dedicated dental outpatient clinic, with the services of a Pedodontist once weekly.

Our dental services include:
  • Individually tailored evaluation in a child friendly atmosphere
  • Medical management of dental problems
  • Minor dental procedures
  • Parental training – home dental care and hygiene
