Hey everyone,

Let's talk health...more so dental health. 

How many of us/ you avoid going into the dentist for yearly teeth cleanings and other oral care because;
a) you cannot get into the tiny offices
b) you cannot transfer
c) they are not set up properly to create a smooth experience, etc

Recently, Spinal Cord Injury B.C posted this great article regarding a new and innovative dental office experience. Check it out below.  

What do you think?

Dr. David Burdett has just made going to the dentist so much better! His wheelchair accessible dental chair requires no transfers and is the first of it's kind in BC! Show Dr. Burdett some love by liking or commenting and hopefully other BC dentists will follow his lead! https://sci-bc.ca/accessible-dentist/
