Dental Care for Patients with Special Needs

Since 1976, Tufts has provided comprehensive oral health care to developmentally and physically disabled children and adults throughout Massachusetts. Tufts Dental Facilities for Patients with Special Needs are in eight locations in Massachusetts, including in Canton, Wrentham, Taunton, Hathorne, Shrewsbury, Groton, Baldwinville and West Springfield. The result of a contractual partnership between the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and the state’s Department of Developmental Services and Department of Public Health, this nationally recognized program – the largest of its kind – serves more than 7,000 patients.  Focused on the dental health needs of individuals with developmental disabilities such as autism, blindness and Down syndrome, Tufts Dental Facilities for Patients with Special Needs draw on the support of university, community, government, hospital and private health care resources to fill an important health care gap.
