A Dental Clinic Accessible To All
LTS Installs SureHands Lift at Leading-Edge Dental Clinic for Adults with Special Needs
The Special Needs Adult Dental Clinic at King-Chavez Health Center is unique to the San Diego region and exists to provide high-quality dental care services to adult patients with disabilities. San Diego County, alone, has approximately 15,000 people with special needs, many of whom are underserved or not served at all.
We love the work that we do. Day after day, we get to witness people experience better mobility and ease of living in their homes, hospitals and rehab centers. We install equipment that improves access to the most essential living spaces. And recently, we had the chance to work with an organization that is leading the way for truly accessible dental care.
Now, patients at the Special Needs Adult Dental Clinic will find even greater accessibility when they head for their dentist appointment. In May, we installed a SureHands Lift System over the dental chair – and it looks fantastic! But, more importantly, it will allow all patients to transfer easily to the chair to get the work they need done.
Two experienced dental professionals are on-hand to see patients at the Special Needs Adult Dental Clinic – Dr. Diana Zchaschel and Dr. Malieka Johnson. They both have a history and passion for working with the disability community.
