Special Needs Dentistry
Patients with special care needs lInwood Galloway cape, may county & atlantic county
Dr. Arthur Thurm has served the special needs community for more than 30 years. Patients with disabilities often need care above and beyond that provided in a conventional dental office setting, which is why many dentists refer patients to us. In fact, sixty percent of our disabled patients are referred to us by other dentists.
We treat patients with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis and other physical and developmental disabilities. Treating the special needs population requires an extremely high level of skill and expertise. A dentist for disabled patients understands the many risk factors involved in administering anesthesia to this patient population and take every safety precaution. Instead, care is delivered while the patient is comfortably asleep. After treatment, we partner with your local general dentist who can continue delivering routine maintenance care.
Dr. Thurm is a member of the Special Care Dental Association.

Many times people come to us because they or their family member haven’t gotten proper dental care. Many dental professionals were not equipped or skilled to handle special needs. Special needs patients are at much higher risk for oral disease. Thorough and proper treatment is not only essential but also requires skilled attention with an eye toward prevention. Special needs patients with a regular dental routine are more likely to receive appropriate preventive care.
Prevention can make a huge difference in the quality of life. Whether the patient has a mental, emotional or physical disability, we have over 30 years of experience to ensure he or she gets the ultimate in care every time for vital, prolonged health.
