The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

The Dental Home for Persons with Autism

Oral health is a very important component of healthy daily living. But for some children with autism, oral health habits can be difficult to develop due to hyper sensitivities. Families need to be informed on how to manage challenging procedures like extractions, fillings, fitting of oral appliances, among others, as this can cause a person with autism much distress. This seminar focuses on the engagement between the dentist and the parents on how to handle their child with special needs. The discussion will guide and give us information on oral health care delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way.

The Autism Society Philippines has very recently signed a memorandum of agreement with the Pediatric Dentistry Center to provide continuous family-centric oral health education and discounted dental services to members of our community. Learn more about how you can leverage on this partnership at the seminar.
