EDS Dentists Here to Help

We are looking forward to meeting you

EDS Dental Care Experts

Dr. William Shelton and Dr. Alexis Russell are the owners of Tulane Family Dentistry, an energetic, friendly, welcoming, vibrant dental office that serves to provide the highest quality dental care to our patients young and old, including pediatrics. We are passionate about respecting the individual needs of our patients, which begins with listening to our patients and educating them about their oral and systemic health. Our interest in Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is centered on the premise of knowledge and education. As physicians of the head and neck, our role is to identify any underlying conditions and how they present within the mouth. The dental manifestations of EDS are very common, but are important to identify and manage early to prevent negatively affecting the patient’s quality of life. Working with the EDS community, our objective is to establish an individualized comprehensive care plan and work with the EDS patient to achieve those goals. Our commitment is to honor the wants and needs of our EDS population and be a resource to help them navigate and enjoy the beauty of life.

Research on hypermobility and Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes is far behind other medical diagnoses. It takes the voice of the patient and the support of the community to fund research projects that will allow increased awareness, development of diagnostic criteria and evidence-based treatment protocols.
