Penn Dental Medicine at Woods

At Penn Dental Medicine at Woods, we understand that people with cognitive, developmental, or physical disabilities have trouble finding a dental team willing and able to meet their needs. Delaying dental care puts their teeth at risk and can have a negative impact on their overall health. In fact, research has shown that oral health problems can increase an individual’s risk of heart disease, respiratory infections, diabetes, and other health conditions.

Penn Dental Medicine at Woods is here to help individuals with special needs find dentists who are trained professionals, and create a comfortable, caring environment.

Your First Visit: What to Expect

During your first visit, our dental team will conduct a comprehensive evaluation that includes an oral examination and any necessary x-rays or radiographs. Your dentist will talk to you about any pain, discomfort, or concerns you have and provide timely, appropriate treatment.

Two days before your first visit to Penn Dental Medicine at Woods, our scheduling team will send you an automated telephone message to remind you of your scheduled appointment. If you have any records, X-rays, or radiographs from your previous dentist from the past five years, you should bring those with you. Both printed and digital formats are fine.

People with disabilities no longer have to put off dental care. Our dentists are here for you. Request an Appointment
