Dental Services for Persons with Special Needs

  

There are dentists in Singapore who are able to provide routine dental treatment for adults with special needs, including those with intellectual disabilities or Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). 

For basic dental procedures, click here for the list of dentists and their contact details. Please contact the dentist(s) to enquire on their services and fees before making an appointment to visit the clinic. 
 
The general dentists may refer patients to dentists who are specially trained in special needs patient care if it is a complex case. Click here to download the list of dentists who are trained to treat adults with special needs (including adults with intellectual disabilities or ASD). 
 
If the dentist assesses that General Anaesthesia is required to perform the necessary treatment, please note the following:
  • The patient may be referred to a hospital with the necessary facilities for treatment.
  • In a non-emergency situation, and if the patient is aged 21 years and above, consent from a deputy appointed by the Court may be required. 
 

Oral Care for Persons with Special Needs

 
Good dental hygiene should be practised from an early age. It is important for caregivers to start tooth brushing as soon as baby teeth emerge (i.e. from 6-months old onwards) so that persons with special needs can get used to having their teeth brushed at a young age.
