I currently Have a home that facilitates adults with developmental disabilities. March 17, 2012 10:00am.
I took one of my consumers to the Westren Dental In California on Venice and Western. My client complied with all of the procedures, taking x-rays and letting the Dentist examin his teeth. However when it came time for him to get a simple regular cleaning, the Dentist then told me that he does not feel comfortable , due to the fact that he does not know what my consumer might do to him. However my consumer has been cooropative the entire time we were there and has no history of public aggression.
So the Dentist recommended that we see a specialist. So I then turned to the Dentist Dr. Kwon and asked him, " So let me get this straight you will not brush my consumers teeth because he has a disability "? and Dr.
Kwon said " Yes ". I then asked the assistants in the front for Corporates number, and will proceed to take this matter futher than just leaving a message. Discrimmination is flat out wrong no matter whom it may be towards, and I will continue to advocate for adults with developmental disabilities that are denied their rights due to a persons ignorance like Dr.
Kwon's from Western Dental @ 1565 S Western Ave. At Venice Blvd 323-734-9514
