Special Needs Dentistry
What is Special Needs Dentistry?
Children who have special needs still deserve quality, comprehensive dental care. Many dental offices do not offer the care that they need, which can make it difficult for them to have the work done that is needed. For this reason, we offer high-quality special needs dentistry to patients of all ages. We aim to keep their appointments calm, comfortable and relaxed, while being able to accommodate their unique needs.
Why might Special Needs Dentistry be needed?
Whether your child is unable to sit still in a dental chair, has severe anxiety over visiting the office or if they’re bound to a wheelchair or other device, you may find it difficult to get them the care that they need. We offer many different options to make their time more comfortable in our office. This involves accommodating them and ensuring that their time in our office is as relaxed as possible.
Who is a candidate for Special Needs Dentistry?

What can be expected during an appointment concerning Special Needs Dentistry?
The first appointment allows us to get to know you and your child. We will consult with you to determine their own unique needs and then help in providing them with the care that they need. The initial visit typically involves a cleaning and examination. We will clear away any tartar and staining from their teeth and then polish their smile to a high shine. The next step is to examine their teeth to determine if they need any additional work. Treatment is done quickly and easily in our office regardless of your child’s special needs and requirements.
