Dentistry for Children with Special Health Care Needs
Children of all ages with special health care needs absolutely require comprehensive preventative dental care. It is integral to their optimal health and well-being. We encourage you to bring them in early to establish a routine and make the environment less stressful for them when a dental need arises.
Our pediatric dental staff is educated, experienced and compassionate when it comes to the care of our special children with:
• Down Syndrome,
• Cerebral Palsy
• Sensory integration
• And other mental and physical disabilities.
For children who have decay and cannot tolerate dental work in a traditional manner, we offer conscious sedation or IV sedation. Dr. Maggie is a pediatric dental specialist and understands your child may have complex needs. We are happy to discuss options and expectations prior to your first visit. We can even schedule a “walk through” so your child can visit the office, take pictures, ride in the dental chair, touch and listen to our spinning toothbrushes and look around before it is their turn!
