No one really wants to see the dentist. Some don't see it as anything to be happy about. Providing dental treatment for the handicapped when they are so afraid of it makes it tough for them to receive dental care.

How do you convince a mentally retarded person that the dentist and his tools are what he needs for the relief of his toothache?

How does a dentist handle a patient who has a hard time keeping his head in one place during the treatment?

Because of these and other considerations, a masonic organization began funding a program to provide quality dental care for handicapped persons at a local clinic. The dental facility opens its doors to handicapped people of all types and ages from the United States and Canada. The handicapped person does not shoulder any costs. Payment methods that the patient can use are either public assistance, if eligible, or insurance coverage.

Just in case there are a lack of funds, the foundation of the organization provides the payment. Expenses such as transportation, fare, lodging, and hospitalization are all taken care of by them. The cost for every patient is between $350 to $550, exclusive of air travel.

The patient is given the dental treatment in a hospital operating room while under anesthesia. Dental and medical evaluation requires the patient to be at the hospital a day before. The center already receives background information of the patient, including his or her medical and dental records.

When handicapped patients stay in the hospital, family members stay in a room connected to the patients'. After about three and a half days, patients are able to leave the hospital. There are cases that are handled in the hospital and cases that require out patient care. Follow up care and further work is also provided.

Patients who are treated while under the effects of general anesthesia are usually those who are physically or mentally handicapped. The latest equipment for dental care was bought to make treatment better and more comfortable. The dentist and his assistant will be able to sit while working thanks to the new dental chairs.

In order to work with handicaps, a dentist must be very patient. You should be able to see what matters to them. Understanding the environment of the patient and how others perceive him is also necessary. The college of dentistry at the local university works closely with the program. This will provide proper training for dentists who will be handling those who are handicapped.

Trained dentists will be recorded by the sponsoring organization for any future treatments. Sponsorship is available for patients who request for dental care. So far, we've been in good relations with the patients' families. They're just happy to get the care because for years there was no such facility.
