Special Needs Patients

We Welcome Patients with Special Requirements

Dentist appointments can be scary! They can also be hard to sit still for, complicated to understand, and trigger reactions you weren’t expecting. We understand all of that at Hunt Family Dentistry. Every smile is unique, and every patient is unique. Our goal is to provide a safe, comfortable, and caring environment for all of our patients, regardless of their abilities or medical history. Our special needs dental clinic in Frisco, TX, can accommodate the individual requirements of patients with disabilities, a dental phobia, or a severe gag reflex.

Understanding and Accommodating Dentistry

We’ve equipped our practice with accommodations such as:

  • Sedation Dentistry: For patients who experience anxiety or have difficulty sitting through a procedure, we offer sedation options to make the experience more relaxing.
  • Needle-Free Injectors: We minimize discomfort with the help of Comfort-in™ needleless injectors for administering local anesthetic.
  • Non-Invasive Imaging: Our advanced imaging techniques are faster, easier, and more accurate, making dental visits more efficient and comfortable.
  • Family-Friendly Approach: We encourage family involvement. Our team is here to discuss any concerns and work hand-in-hand with families and caregivers.

Patients with Disabilities

Our dentist office in Frisco, TX, is equipped with accessible facilities to ensure that all patients, regardless of physical limitations or challenges, can receive the dental care they deserve. Our staff is trained to understand and anticipate the needs of patients with disabilities, offering personalized assistance and modifications to dental procedures. Communication is key, and we make every effort to ensure clear, compassionate communication with our patients and their caregivers to create a positive dental experience for everyone involved.

Dental Phobia

To reduce anxiety and fear, we implement a variety of strategies, including a calming office environment, gentle communication, and the option for sedation dentistry. We believe in building trust with you by listening to your concerns and adapting our approach to suit your comfort levels. Even during treatment, you can raise your hand or get our attention, and we’ll stop to check on you, explain anything, and change tactics if necessary. Our goal is to ensure that fear does not stand in the way of anyone receiving dental care.

Our Dental

Severe Gag Reflex

Understanding that a severe gag reflex can significantly impede dental procedures, Dr. Hunt makes use of distraction methods, slower and more careful placement of dental instruments, and sedation options when necessary. We strive to ensure that you don’t feel self-conscious or uncomfortable throughout your visit. That way, you get dental care you might otherwise avoid due to your gag reflex. Our severe gag reflex dentist is attentive and patient, ready to adjust treatments as needed to provide a positive visit.
