Dentistry For Special People is Now Laser Certified!

"We offer an unbiased, understanding atmosphere to discuss Tongue/Lip Tie issues"

Dentistry For Special People tooth logo and kidsIs your infant having a difficult time nursing? Is your child experiencing speech, eating, or orthodontic problems? Have you tried the exercises, met with therapists, and continued to persevere with your child, all while thinking, "why aren't we seeing the results that we expected to see by now?" Did you know that these are all common symptoms of a Tongue and/or Lip Tie? If not, let us be the first to tell you that it's true. This could also mean that a frenectomy may be needed to help remove the barriers that are causing the therapy, exercises and treatment that you have been using to correct these issues to fail. In the past it may have been hard to find a local doctor to turn to even to get an evaluation for your little one.  That’s why we are excited to announce that our very own Dr. “Zu” Sayany has been awarded a certificate from the American Board of Laser Surgery for achieving proficiency in Laser Dental Surgery and can now perform Laser Dentistry in the office! You heard it right- you can now have your infant or child evaluated for a tongue or lip tie by Dr. Zu, and if it is determined that a frenectomy is needed, you can also have the procedure done at Dentistry For Special People with a simple laser procedure. Call our office or request an appointment online for an evaluation for your child. We also do Parent-to-Doctor consults to discuss your questions with the doctor first and determine whether your child should have an evaluation done. We are here to answer your questions and figure it out together.

Dentistry For Special People's 4th Annual Halloween Candy BuyBack

October 1st, 2018

Dentistry For Special People is super excited to invite you to our 4th Annual Halloween Candy BuyBack! This year’s Buyback event will be held on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018, from 10am to 1pm, at both our Cherry Hill and Turnersville locations!

If you are new to our Candy BuyBack event, it’s like this: Kids go Trick-or-Treating on Halloween and collect tons of candy, right? So parents, you then sort through their candy, take all the king size for yourself (wink, wink), and the let the kids pick out a certain amount that they keep for themselves. The kids then bring their unwanted, (or should we say, unneeded) Halloween candy to our office and we will “buy” that candy back at $1 per pound. The kids leave with the cash for their hard earned trick-or-treating, and we then send all of the candy we get off to be put into care packages for our troops who are overseas, serving to protect our nation.

We will also have special prizes for the littler “ghouls and goblins” who still prefer toys over money, as well as a craft table for the kids to make cards and draw pictures to send to the troops with the candy that is sent  : )

Last year we collected well over 700 pounds of candy, and we are expecting no less this year. We’ve said this before and we will say it again- the kindness and generosity of the kids in this community never ceases to amaze us- and the “BuyBack” part of this is our little way of giving back to the kids and families, who always give so much!

For more details feel free to reach out via phone or email with any questions as well!

We hope to see you all there!

Meet our newest Pediatric Dentist Dr. Ashley Abraham!

August 14th, 2018

Welcome Dr. Abraham

Dentistry For Special People is thrilled to officially announce the newest dentist to join TeamDfsp, Dr. Ashley Abraham! Dr. Abraham has been our neighbor since day one: She grew up in Newtown, Pennsylvania and now lives in Philadelphia. It’s always an added bonus to have a dentist who “roots” for the home teams with us!

Dr. Abraham is passionate about the opportunity to help our patients build healthy habits at a young age, that will set them up for great attitudes towards oral health and coming to the dentist!
To quote Dr. Abraham herself, she is "excited by the challenge of learning each child’s unique personality & set of needs, so that she can communicate in a way that makes him or her feel comfortable." By doing so, she hopes to help our patients "develop the skills to power through their dental visits with more ease.” 

We are super excited to have found the perfect match for our team, and we know our patients, and their parents, will adore her as much as we do! Please help us warmly welcome Dr. Ashley Abraham into our Dental Home as the newest pediatric dentist of Dentistry For Special People!
