Dentistry for the
Developmentally Disabled

If you are looking for quality dental care for a loved one who is developmentally disabled, you can turn to Town Center Dental of LaGrange. We have a staff and office environment that is fully equipped to handle the unique concerns of special needs patients. Dr. Paes is a caring and gentle dentist with experience in treating children and adults with developmental handicaps or disabilities. He understands the specific oral health concerns they may face as well as how to accommodate them in the dental chair. At Town Center Dental of LaGrange, we pride ourselves on our ability to give each patient a comfortable and rewarding experience in dental care. Everyone deserves a healthy and beautiful smile, regardless of a medical diagnosis or injury.

A Comfortable Dental Experience
for Special Needs Patients

Town Center Dental of LaGrange is prepared to treat patients with physical limitations, mental limitations or both. Our office is stocked with modern patient amenities to help them feel at home as well as state-of-the-art technology to make our dental care services faster and less invasive. In addition, Dr. Paes is qualified to offer oral conscious sedation as well as IV sedation for those that need extra help relaxing in the dental chair. From a child with Down’s Syndrome to an adult with Alzheimer’s, our team is dedicated to excellence in special needs dentistry.

Dr. Paes understands that special needs patients are often more vulnerable to oral health problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Due to poor dexterity or mental challenges, routine oral hygiene can be more difficult. We will educate caregivers on the best ways to maintain dental health, despite these obstacles. In some cases, we may want to see a special needs patient more frequently for routine cleanings.

Rest assured that Town Center Dental of LaGrange is fully equipped to provide all types of dental services under one roof, from general and restorative dentistry to cosmetic dentistry and emergency care. Once your loved one feels comfortable in our office environment, you won’t have to go anywhere else for specialized dental work. This is a valued advantage for those who are developmentally disabled.

Do you know someone who needs special needs dentistry in Dutchess County? We welcome the opportunity to help you at Town Center Dental of LaGrange. Contact our office today for a new patient appointment.


I needed to change dentists and Town Center Dental was recommended by a friend. It was the best decision I made... Dr Paes is amazing, he explained everything that he did and was very gentle. My dental hygienist was amazing and the staff was friendly and accommodating. You couldn't ask for more from a dental office. I highly recommend this group...

I had not been to the dentist in quite some time and will never miss another visit after receiving the best service ever. Aleena was my hygienist and was absolutely wonderful. There was a lot of cleaning that needed to be done and she made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. She was extremely informative and it was a great learning experience. I would recommend TCD to anyone and look forward to my next visit. Thank you Aleena!

Everyone in this office were very friendly and knowledgeable. As a new patient I felt they took their time to know me and did a great job. I would highly recommend converting to town center dental. From the staff in the front to Dr Paes and his excellent hygienist Sandy I find everyone to be warm and caring.

Dr. Wilkie Paes and his assistant Lea work well as a team. They are very personable and professional. I had a replacement crown and a new crown done together. Dr. Paes walks you through the process. The professionalism, quality and workmanship are impeccable. From the moment you walk in the door you will find the entire staff are very pleasant and professional. The practice has the latest technology. If you are looking for a dental office....... look no further! Highly Recommended!

Had a great experience at Town Center Dental today. Started with a warm greeting by the friendly front desk staff. Then, MaryEllen, my hygienist, was thorough, friendly and explained each and every step of the process from x-rays to my final cleaning. Dr. Paes then did a complete exam. He was calming, communicative and highly informative. Dr. Paes and Town Center Dental is now the dental office for me any my family.

Mitch G.

This dentistry office is absolutely incredible. I do not like going to any doctor's office and I was not intimated by any staff member and especially Dr. Paes, the dentist. He thoroughly explained all the procedures and payment plans. The prices are VERY reasonable for someone without insurance. He spent a large amount of time with me discussing insurance and dental maintenance. The television screen of your teeth was pretty cool! Sunglasses to wear to dim the light was a nice too. Great dentistry office!!!
