Dr. Chantal Czerednikow uses techniques such as music therapy, patient guided sensory integration, nitrous oxide sedation, social stories and pictograms depending on the the patient’s reaction to dental care. Dr. Czerednikow’s adapted approach has enabled many patients to accept dental treatment without the use of general anesthesia. Listening to the family and finding out what calms or triggers the patient is an integral part of the approach at the Oral Health Clinic for Neurodevelopmental Diversity. The OHCND serves adults with Autism and/or Intellectual Disability using an approach that is highly adapted to the patient. A full range of treatment is provided; cleanings, fillings, extractions, root canals, crowns and removable prosthesis, with and without conscious sedation.
Affiliated with the McGill Faculty of Dentistry General Practice Residency Program, the residents actively participate in the care of the patients and attend multiple seminars given by Dr. Czerednikow to discuss techniques in dental care for people with Autism and/or Intellectual Disability.
Unfortunately our patient volume has exceeded our clinic capacity. We cannot accept new patients for the moment. For our current patients, we have taken the difficult decision to provide only emergency treatments until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.
