Visiting the dentist can be traumatic for children.  For children with special needs, anesthesia is often needed in order even to carry out even the simplest of checks.

Beit Issie Shapiro opened the Naomi & Shimon Ditkovsky Dental Clinic in 1989 to provide comprehensive oral health and dental treatment services for people with developmental disabilities.

We have developed a unique method of treating people with special needs, using Snoezelen therapy to calm the patient.  The results have been outstanding with anesthesia only now needed to carry out the most difficult procedures.
