Patients with special needs often have different oral health challenges and need to receive specific services and additional care in order to maintain good oral health. Special needs dentistry helps patients who face physical or mental limitations or other challenges receive care. Our dentists and team are committed to helping individuals with special needs maintain good oral health and offering quality dental care in a comfortable environment where they can feel safe and at ease.
Our team works with both the patient and the primary caregiver to create an individualized treatment plan based on the patient’s needs, ability to tolerate treatment, and risk of tooth decay and dental disease. We will take the time to make sure that the patient feels comfortable, explain treatment options, and address the concerns of both the patient and primary caregiver. We are happy to adjust the treatment plan to accommodate specific situations and needs as they change.
If you are a primary caregiver for an individual with special needs, including someone with Alzheimer’s disease, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, multiple sclerosis or developmental delays, we welcome you to give our office a call and find out about special needs dentistry and their options for dental care. We will be happy to provide you with more information and help you make an appointment with our dentists.
