Wendy Williams, BS, RDHAP, owner of Special Access Dental, is a specially trained dental hygienist for the special needs patient. She has been in the dental field for over 20 years and has a special training and license from the State of California to treat patients in a mobile setting. She will provide high quality dental care using state-of-the-art portable dental equipment. The dental equipment is equivalent to the dental office. She is able to perform beneficial and thorough dental cleanings. Patients are treated while they sit in their wheelchair, in their bed or in a portable dental chair. By bring the services to the residence we can provide care with minimum stress in a familiar safe environment making it easier for all that are involved. .
Wendy has been lucky to have the support from Dr Craig Olson, a dentist from Placentia, who she worked with for 14 years. There Wendy saw the need to reach out to those who don't access a dental office.
Wendy's dedication was observed first hand, going out of her way to help patients that have special needs. One day she cleaned a disabled boy's teeth in his mom's car. The patients mom couldn't get him to corporate and come into the office. So she brought her instrument out to him. Now she has the mobile equipment to help her with treatment.
The lack of accessibility to dental care has been a problem for too long for the elderly and children. She hopes her dedication to the community will help.
