Penn Partners With Woods to Care For Individuals With Disabilities


medical examExpanding its outreach within the community, the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine has an­nounced a new partnership with Woods Services to provide dental treatment for Woods’ patients and residents. Woods is a Pennsylvania- and New Jersey-based nonprofit that serves children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries. Woods’ dental clinic within its Langhorne, Pennsylvania, campus will undergo extensive renovations and reopen as Penn Dental Medicine at Woods Mikey Faulkner Dental Care Center.

“We are thrilled to expand services within the community through our Woods partnership,” says Penn Dental Medicine’s Morton Amsterdam Dean Mark S. Wolff, DDS, PhD. “It not only allows us to provide comprehensive dental care to Woods patients, it also offers an invaluable setting for our students to gain experience in caring for individuals with a wide range of disabilities.”

The alliance is an extension of Penn Dental Medicine’s efforts to provide care for individuals with disabilities, as well as training for students when treating these patients. The affiliation also complements the instruction students receive at Penn’s new Care Center for Persons with Disabilities, which opened in 2021.
