When you have family members with physical or mental disabilities, life is just different. Everyday events and tasks each have unique challenges that other families cannot possibly understand. One of the most challenging can be visiting the dentist for routine oral care. At Downriver Smiles in Spokane, WA, Dr. Cory Gaunt and our team are committed to serving every member of our dental family, including patients with disabilities.

We realize this can mean making a wide number of custom accommodations for different needs. From moving furniture or taking extra time to sedation dentistry options, our team will do what is necessary to see that your family member with mental or physical disabilities receives the top-tier level of care they deserve.

Very often, this does include some form of sedation so your loved one can relax and allow us to take good care of their teeth and gums. Our team at Downriver Smiles is extensively trained and experienced in sedation dentistry so we can administer it safely and effectively to patients. We also depend on you to share with us the most effective means to care for your loved one. Perhaps we can use this valuable information to help us provide familiar care approaches and allow us to offer the best oral care possible.

Dr. Gaunt is the best! This is the first dentist that I have had a good experience with. I had a root canal done and was so nervous, they made me comfortable and had it done within an hour. I would definitely recommend Downriver smiles!

I had the worst dental anxiety before going to Dr. Gaunt years ago- to the point I let my teeth go until they were breaking, in need of numerous fillings, root canals, and extractions. Dr. Gaunt was by far the best dentist I have ever had; he explained everything in as much detail as I required, made me comfortable with any procedure and has won my and my family's business throughout the years with his excellent care and demeanor. Dr. Gaunt and all his wonderful staff are a joy to work with and I can guarantee our continued visits in the years to come for any work my family requires. Thank you Downriver Smiles staff!

The employees at Shadle Smiles are so friendly and make sure you understand your procedures and cost before work is done. Dr Harding was my dentist and listened to my concerns about work to be done. He only does what work really needs to be done and what can wait. Love this place!

  • Best dentist in Spokane! Don’t look any further! I chipped my front tooth and they got me in the next day! Left with a beautiful smile and my wallet still intact! I wasn’t an existing patient, but I am now! Awesome environment and extremely friendly staff! 10/10 hands down would recommend!

  • Downriver Smiles is amazing! They provide the kind of experience that we all hope for when going to the dentist. Everyone there is caring and takes all the time needed to make sure you are comfortable and that your questions are answered. Dr. Harding is wonderful! I would never want to go anywhere else.
