Special Needs Dentistry
We strongly encourage and welcome those with special needs children to visit us and make use of the services we offer. Many children with special needs are very susceptible to decay, gum disease and oral trauma. Others require medications and have diets that are detrimental to good oral health. This is all complicated by the difficulty in managing behaviors at home that will enable appropriate oral hygiene measures. Those with significant medical, physical, or mental disabilities often present unique challenges. We believe that our specialty training and motivation enables us to treat your child successfully. We hope you will take advantage of our expertise, maximizing on our ability to give your child the opportunity for better oral health.
