The specialist dental service was recommended to us via my sons PAG meeting at school. My son is autistic and had a very upsetting experience at 4 years old with another dentist. This has led him to refusing to even see a dentist up to now.
After 2 previous appointments where trust was built and the procedure explained, my son has now had work done (he is now nearly 16! )
The team are amazing and I am so happy that he feels able to have this much needed treatment now to prolong his dental health. We have another treatment in August and then can look at trying to get him to see our usual dentist so the service can be used for someone similar to my son.
I cannot thank the team enough for listening to him, working at his speed, not getting cross as all this little ways and questions and being my saviours xxx
