Special Care Dentistry At Saint Francis Private Hospital

Special Care Dentistry

Special Care Dentistry is a relatively new field that deals with the special needs of patients with medical problems, learning disabilities or sever anxiety to dental treatments.

Another aspect of the specialty is meeting the needs of patients who are unable to get routine dentistry and require sedation or general anaesthesia.

Dr Saifullah Khan is providing this revolutionary care at the Mullingar Dental Centre and St. Francis Private Hospital.

Dr Khan graduated as a dental surgeon in 2006 and completed post-graduate training at the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute of the University College London, from where he successfully completed his Master in Special Care Dentistry in 2011. He also holds membership of the Faculty of Dentistry of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
