"My son who has autism and our family dentist"

Ram and Sarah

My son has autism and our family dentist couldn’t get him through the door leading to the teeth being taken out under anaesthetic. Over the last few years Ram has slowly got to know him and on his last visit was able to check his teeth and even do a scrape and polish! ! Sarah let him choose sun glasses! He listens to Seans’s worries, joins in with his conversations and even checks the teeth of which ever Thomas train Sean has with him.

He does an amazing job, thank you Ram x

Response from Christine Swann, Senior Administrator, Salaried Dental, Health Partnerships

Thank you so much for sharing your dental experience with us. It is always pleasing to know that we have helped to alleviate a patients anxieties about going to the dentist. It sounds as if Sean has built up a fantastic relationship with Ram and his Nurse Sarah and they are able to care for his teeth.

We will pass on your kind words to Ram and his team.
