Dental Care for Individuals with Autism
Oral health care is the most prevalent unmet health care need among children with and without special needs (Newacheck et al., 2000; Yu et al., 2002). Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation enabled SARRC to develop Dental Information Guides and Trainings for families of individuals with autism, autism service providers, and dental professionals to expand oral healthcare for those on the spectrum in dental offices and at home.
The resource guides and dental trainings were developed with input from a commissioned dental committee made up of parents, SARRC clinicians and representatives from the professional dental community.
