Special Needs Dentistry

Children with special needs deserve our special attention. Children with medical problems that cannot be prevented should not be asked to suffer from dental problems that can be prevented. Starting preventive dentistry early is particularly important for a special needs child. If dental care is started early and followed conscientiously, every child can enjoy a healthy smile. Unlike many of the health conditions faced by patients with special needs, dental disease is preventable. A special needs child will benefit from the preventive approach recommended for all children: effective brushing and flossing, limited snacking, adequate fluoride, sealants, and regular dental visits.

As a parent of a child with special needs, you may have concerns about your child’s tolerance for a dental visit. Whatever your concerns, do not postpone preventive dentistry for your child. Our pediatric dentists understand that each child is unique and may need extra care to feel comfortable during dental treatments. Every child is different and because of this, our approach to treating each child will be tailored to their specific needs. Our pediatric dentists will provide a plan that is compassionate and effective.
