Wheelchair Access and Assistance Animals welcome
The Elite Dental surgery is wheelchair and electric wheelchair accessible. There is convenient and close parking. Our team ensures that patients are comfortable and safe during all procedures. For example, we may use adaptive devices, such as positioning aids, to help patients maintain proper positioning during treatment. We also welcome emotional support pets or assistance animals and we allow patients to retain their security blankets or toys as needed.
Ryde Rehabilitation Hospital
Currently, Dr Wareham, treats patients from the Ryde Rehabilitation Hospital and carefully follows best practice when engaging with patients and their carers.
What to do before a visit
When planning a dental visit, talk to the patient calmly explaining how Dr Wareham is there to help and that they may feel some discomfort. Dr Wareham will carefully monitor the patient’s comfort and stop regularly for breaks. It is also important to bring a copy of their consent form and discuss with us if pain or relaxation medication might be administered prior to a visit.
For anxious patients with high needs, sleep or twilight dentistry can be arranged and we will arrange for an anesthetist to be present.
Following any procedures clear advice and follow-up is provided for post care.
