Proper dental care is just as important for children with special needs as it is for any child. Yet it is sometimes more difficult for kids with special needs to get optimal care.

Did you know that pediatric dentists have an additional two to three years of training after they complete dental school? Infants, children, pre-teens, teenagers, and children with special needs all require different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. Pediatric dentists are best qualified to meet these needs. One of the most important aspects of the pediatric dental curriculum and training involves treating patients with special needs.

We want your child to have a fun, pleasant first dental visit, and the same for each one thereafter. When your child visits our dental office, we will:

  • Review their medical and dental history

  • Perform a complete examination of the teeth and gums 

  • Take radiographs (if needed)  

  • Polish the teeth and do a  fluoride treatment  (depending on age and behavior)

  • Answer any questions you may have concerning their oral health 

 Parents are welcome to accompany their child to the treatment area throughout the entire visit.
