"Serving People with Mental and Physical Disabilities"

Our Mission
SAID is a benevolent group of dental professionals whose mission is to improve the oral health
of people with disabilities through service, education, and advocacy.

Welcome to SAID's website. We are Special Care Advocates In Dentistry. Our membership exceeds over 300 members that hail from twenty nine (29) states, we have over sixty three (63) institutions and three (3) dental schools, who provide services to institutionalized and community based clients.

The scope of SAID has changed to not only include the developmentally disabled client, but also the mentally ill client. SAID is the only organization in the United States that deals solely with the dental needs of the institutionalized client. Its membership is comprised of dental professionals working full time in institutions or professionals who devote a large portion of their time treating the developmentally disabled, mental ill and/or otherwise medically compromised client.
