N.Y.U. Dental Center Caters To Disabled Patients

The New York University College of Dentistry opened a facility this year that treats patients with physical, developmental and cognitive disabilities.

The Oral Health Center for People with Disabilities opened in February at First Ave. and E. 24 St. The 8,000-square-foot space includes nine patient treatment rooms, featuring extra space for wheelchairs or accompaniment by family or a caretaker. The treatment rooms also have lights that change colors for a soothing effect, plus iPads to attach to patient chairs.
