President’s message

Olaf Plotzke-President


Welcome to our CSDH web site. 

We are a brand-new organization whose primary purpose is to improve the oral health and quality of life of folks with special needs in our society and in our practices.

As we continue to develop over the next few months you will see changes to this web site as we add connections, resources and information available to you.

Our mission is to be a totally inclusive organization. Any and everyone who has an interest in the oral health of special needs folks are welcome.

With your $ 60.00 membership to CSDH you can automatically access the International Association for Disability and Oral Health (IADH) website and sign up as a member at no further cost to you. You also receive all the membership benefits that bothorganizations have to offer, such as discounts to IADH events , application to research, travel grants and most importantly meeting like minded people from around the globe offering learning and connecting possibilities unlike any other association.

Access to Care and Funding Providers prepared to see and treat patients with special needs is our initial primary goal.

We are not here to take anyone out of their comfort zone when it comes to dealing with patients with special needs.. We are here to help you in that regard.

We are initially and simply asking for your support by joining the CSDH and allow us (one and all) to become a strong voice advocating for the oral health and quality of life for patients with special needs. 

Thank you for taking the time to consider joining.

If you have any questions you are welcome to contact me at
