Sensory Adapted Dental Environments
to Enhance Oral Care for Children (SADE-2)
Oral health in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
Children with ASD often experience oral care challenges during dental care. This may be related to behavioral, communication, and sensory difficulties.
What is the SADE-2 research study?
We have developed a sensory adapted dental environment (SADE) to create a less stressful experience at the dentist and improve oral care for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The sensory adapted room includes, special lights, music, and a special butterfly vest designed to help children relax during dental cleanings.
