Presentation Summary

How can we improve the friendliness of our practice spaces and our actual practice to ensure that it is affirming for everyone?

We will take a look into the background and current definitions / classifications of neurodivergence to refresh ourselves before we dive into what Dr Gabrielle Smart has done in her practice space and her personal approach to practicing dentistry to attempt to be accommodating for all.

We will then review case reports and work through step by step what was done to support each patient (family) when developing their individualised treatment plans and how Dr Smart went about executing these plans successfully.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand common conditions often referred to as "neurodivergent"
  • Explore how to make our own practices neurodivergent affirming
  • Treatment planning of patients with ASD

About Paediatric Dentist Dr Gabrielle Smart BDS BSciDent (Hons) DClinDent (Paed) FRACDS (GDP) FRACDS (Paed)

I completed my Bachelor of Dental Surgery with a concurrent Bachelor of Applied Science in Dentistry (Honours) at the University of Adelaide in 2010. I have since completed a Doctorate in Clinical Dentistry (Paediatric Dentistry), also at the University of Adelaide in 2015. I am a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons in both General and Specialist Dental Practice. I worked at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital as a Consultant Paediatric Dentist until mid 2023 and have now taken on the dream of my own practice, with the support of my husband Jimmy and two young children. Away from work I enjoy time with family, horse riding, water skiing and pottering with the kids in the veggie patch.
