Fellow of Special Care Dentistry (USA)
Dr Archana Pradhan obtained her dental degrees from The University of Adelaide. In recognition of her contributions to the emerging specialty, she was awarded a Fellow of Special Care Dentistry by Special Care Dentistry Association, USA.
She is a Consultant at the Special Needs Unit, Adelaide Dental Hospital, and has been providing dental care to people with special needs since 2004. In 2014, she commenced private practice at the Colgate Australian Clinical Dental Research Centre (CACDRC) at Adelaide Dental Hospital and visiting consultancy at Showground Dental Care, Sydney. Her scope of practice includes the full range of the specialty and she provides care for:
– Patients with physical/intellectual/psychiatric/medical conditions
– Patients with severe dental anxiety and
– The frail elderly, including nursing home residents.
She manages most patients in the chair with behavioral techniques and oral sedation. However, for the small number of patients, with nil compliance or complex dental treatment needs, arrangements are made for treatment under IV sedation or a general anesthetic. Dr Pradhan has been involved with several research projects on older adults, Special Olympics athletes, and people with disabilities and their carers.
She has presented and published papers at several national and international conferences and journals. She provides volunteer dental services to various organizations like Special Olympics and Royal Flying Doctor Service. As the lead for People with Disabilities, Australia’s National Oral Health Plan (2014 – 2023) and the National Clinical Director, Special Smiles, Special Olympics Australia, she has been a strong advocate for people with disabilities and their carers.
