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.

The attention to detail and desire to leave me better than they found me makes this office a cut above. Thank you Downriver Smiles for being so thoughtful and helpful every time I come in.

  • 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!

  • Dr. Gaunt replaced my two front crowns that I have had since I was 15 years old and now I am 59. He was very meticulous in sizing, shaping, fitting and color matching and spent adequate time to achieve those results. This is the best dental care I have ever had in my life. I highly recommend Downriver Smiles and their very friendly and caring staff.
