Kids With Special Needs


At Pediatric Dentistry, LLC, we work with children who have a wide range of needs. Many children (including patients diagnosed with high anxiety) can benefit from a graduated introduction to dental visits and dental care, particularly if it is their first experience.

The Special Needs Child
A knowledgeable dentist can help prepare you and your child for changes in oral structures, issues with feeding, and future development changes.

Some children lack the ability to fully open their mouths due to jaw development and may have difficulty brushing and flossing regularly, leaving them at risk for developing cavities. Children with sensory challenges may be averse to the texture or sensation of toothpaste and a toothbrush. Other children may have a limited diet higher in sugar which can affect oral development.

Finding a dental team that listens, becomes a therapeutic partner, and has resources available to families is key in establishing a life-long relationship toward the health of your child.

Sedation Dentistry
For children with special needs or high anxiety, our office provides several methods of sleep dentistry to calm their fears; call our office to learn more about sedation dentistry.
