The dentist can be scary, especially if it is new and out of the routine. Sometimes sedation is necessary to help those with special needs get the care they need. We work with you to determine what is the best route to go when it comes to sedation in your special needs child. Whether it is an additional shot at a specific area being worked on or if it is sedation to help them sleep through a procedure. We want you to also feel comfortable and know that safety is our number one priority and all needs of the individual are taken very seriously and evaluated before any decisions are made.

We like to focus on preventative care because it can be the key in avoiding further dental procedures in the future that may cause additional stress and concern in special needs individuals. We will help our patients establish daily personal hygiene goals and will recommend frequent cleaning to take place as well. Preventative care is so important and we work hard to help each individual to understand that and try to make it a fun and exciting experience for them as well.

It is important to us that a special needs individual establishes a good relationship with us. This is something that we take very seriously and want you to feel confident in knowing that your loved one is in good hands. We understand that children with special needs also have special hearts and we work hard to be sensitive to that.
