Texas A&M College of Dentistry filling the gap for special-needs patients

BRYAN, TX — Texas A&M University College of Dentistry is expanding its footprint in special-needs dentistry, filling in the gap, that patients with intellectual disabilities unfortunately endure, when it comes to their dental care.

“Most kids that have special needs are seen by pediatric dentists, traditionally,” says Dr. Dan Burch, a clinical assistant professor in Pediatric Dentistry at Texas A&M University College of Dentistry.

“The issue is, as they age out of most pediatric offices, they kind of run into the problem of finding somewhere to go.” Dr. Burch added.
