Job Details

“It’s not just about fixing a tooth. This can be lifesaving.” said Dr. Russ Dunkel, director of the Gardetto Family Community Dental Clinic, a
state-of-the-art facility designed to treat people of all ages with disabilities. Years of inadequate dental care can lead to serious health problems for these people who often cannot be treated in a standard dental clinic.

For instance Ben, who has cerebral palsy, had 14 cavities and gum disease by the time he came to see Dr. Dunkel. He’d gone without a checkup for 15 years because general dental offices couldn’t accommodate his wheelchair. Ben and his family were relieved to find a place that could meet his needs, and even provide treatment right in his wheelchair. Dr. Dunkel’s patients run the gamut from people like Ben with severe physical disabilities to those with autism, Down syndrome and dementia.

Since opening in August of 2016, the clinic has treated over 400 patients and there are 200 more on the wait list. Even with so many people left to see, Dr. Dunkel knows he and his team are making life-changing differences for patients and their families.

One of the most remarkable moments was with Linda, who has Tardive Dyskinesia. She could barely tolerate being touched and hadn’t been to a dentist in 17 years. Dr. Dunkel and his staff took extra time with her,  and slowly gained the young woman’s trust.

“By the time she left, she was smiling and gave

me a hug,” Dr. Dunkel said. “It’s rewarding

being able to give people with disabilities the care they

so desperately need.”
