Special needs children require special attention, especially when it comes to their dental needs. Finding a dentist who can cater to the specific challenges of a special needs child can be difficult, but that’s why we’re here. We specialize in offering gentle and compassionate dental care for children with special needs, and we know how to make your child feel comfortable and secure throughout the entire process.
We can accommodate whatever unique needs your child may have, whether it’s dietary restrictions or physical accommodations (such as a wheelchair ramp) that we need to make before you come into the office. We want to be sure that your child feels at home when they come to us for dental care.
Our dentists are also extremely knowledgeable about how to work with children who may have difficulty communicating or understanding what’s going on around them. Our staff will be gentle and patient, always ensuring that your child is fully aware of everything we’re doing so they can feel secure.
Before you start looking, it’s important to think about what you want from your child’s dentist and what your child needs from their dentist. If your child has a lot of trouble sitting still for long periods of time, for example, you might want a dentist who is willing to break up the procedure into multiple appointments; if you know your kid is afraid of strangers, you might want one who has some experience with that kind of phobia.
