We Welcome Patients With Special Needs

Dr. Jordan Blankenship-Sniker has a personal connection to the special needs community. Her brother was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, and she saw firsthand the challenges he faced with routine medical and dental appointments. This inspired her to provide quality dental care to patients with special needs. Completing a general practice residency at The University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City gave her exposure to treating a diverse patient population.

Caregivers or loved ones of a patient with special needs can expect highly personalized care at Market Place Dentistry:

  • Dr. Blankenship-Sniker will meet with the patient and determine if it’s necessary to perform treatment in a hospital operating room. She has admitting permissions in several nearby hospitals. She is even happy to coordinate care with other healthcare providers. It’s our goal to have all care happen at our practice, but we know it’s important to have options. We’ll also give you a cost estimate.
  • Considering that some patients with special needs have sensory sensitivities, we have dimmable lighting, weighted blankets, noise canceling headphones, and sensory pillows. We can also work with you to find solutions to unique needs.
  • Because we often restore smiles that have years of dental needs, we’ll split procedures up so it’s more manageable for the patient. We can also arrange for you and your loved one to come in outside regular business hours, if it’s easier for you.

You’ll discover that Dr. Blankenship-Sniker’s calm demeanor, open line of communication, and presumption of competency for every person she encounters make her stand apart from her peers.

We want to be a dental home for all, including patients with special needs. Call 770-670-4753 for an appointment for your special smiles in Roswell. You can also request an appointment online.
