Working With Patients With Special Needs



At Sanborn Orthodontics, we work with patients of all ages and needs. These include patients with special needs, conditions and disabilities. Our team is experienced and willing to work with these patients, and strive to help create a comfortable, relaxing environment.



Just last week, we saw a child with autism. Prior to the appointment, we discussed with her parents the environment in which their daughter feels most comfortable. They mentioned she prefers quiet voices, minimal amount of excitement around her. She also loves dogs!!! We informed our team of these requests and one of our team members also made a DVD of her new puppy for the patient to watch, how awesome is that!!! We believe this patient's visit was a success.




At Sanborn Orthodontics, we do our part to accomodate ALL of our patient's needs.
