Special Needs Deserve Special Care in Burlington

Patients who are dealing with cancer, illnesses that compromise their immune systems, or are taking a lot of medications are just some of the individuals who require special care dentistry. Dr. Mary Makhlouf spent years providing dental care in a hospital setting, so she understands the specific needs of medically compromised patients. Are you dealing with any of the following?

  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Bleeding Disorders or on Blood Thinners
  • Heart Disease
  • Pre Chemotherapy
  • Radiation Therapy to Head/Neck, both Before and After
  • Hemodialysis
  • Transplant
  • Chron's Disease or Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Dementia
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • HIV
  • Taking Lots of Medications
  • Other Medical Conditions
  • Pregnancy (at risk for premature delivery or low birth weight baby)

These are just some of the problems that might require the unique touch of a special care dentist. Because medications can interfere with certain dental care techniques or cause side effects that require attention such as extreme dry mouth, receiving treatment from a dentist who knows about dental care for medically compromised patients is critical. If you or a family member are struggling with serious illness, let Dr. Mary Makhlouf be the dentist you call upon for your care.
