Dentistry for children with disabilities

The dental health of children with disabilities and neurodiversities, such as ADD, ADHD and ASD, is particularly at risk for various reasons. Be it because non-verbal communication techniques in the area of dental hygiene are unknown, be it that the technical implementation of tooth brushing does not work or that the child's individual eating and drinking habits are suboptimal from a cariogenic point of view.

Not infrequently, however, the dental check-up itself, the journey to the practice by bus and streetcar, another treatment in the already full calendar, the waiting time, the unfamiliar surroundings with unfamiliar smells and tastes, dazzling light, loud noises, etc. also represent a major hurdle. Therefore, in addition to special attention, treatment and support, parents, caregivers and practitioners need to work well together. This is a challenge that not every practice is prepared for.

At the Euler practice in Basel, we are prepared. Nothing is further from our minds than interrupting tried and tested processes between you and your children. Instead, we adapt our methods to your child and learn from you. To do this, we conduct a preliminary discussion and take plenty of time. We are supported by our practice assistant Fabienne Schenker, who is herself the mother of a child on the autism spectrum. With ZaZa Care we also offer new and creative methods of dental communication for parents and children. 

Our responsible dentist for this area is Mrs. Dr. med. dent. Asin A. Haschemi.
