Spec Care Dentist. Sep-Oct 1998;18(5):180-2.


As administrators, health care planners, and community-based non-dental professionals plan for care and placement of disabled clients into community settings, the Academy of Dentistry for Persons with Disabilities encourages the inclusion of dentistry as part of the process and urges that experienced institutional dental personnel be utilized, recognizing their vast experience and special skills related to providing for the oral health care of persons with disabilities.
