What is Special Needs Pediatric Dentistry?

Having a little bit of anxiety when going to the dentist is normal for everyone. Those with special needs, however, tend to feel their emotions at a higher intensity – which can add challenges to the dental visit.

Every single one of our young patients is special to us – and if your child has special healthcare needs, we’re here to offer good, quality oral care. By choosing a dentist that offers special needs pediatric dentistry, both the parent and the patient can find comfort with the entire experience.
