The special needs of patients vary based on each individual’s unique challenges. For example, patients with special needs may have a limited ability to care for their teeth, sit through appointments, or struggle with independence.
A special needs child may be disabled due to a medical condition, physical disability, cognitive limitation, or behavioral problem. Examples include spinal cord injury, brain trauma, anxiety, down syndrome, autism spectrum disorder (ASDs), and cerebral palsy.
With varying capabilities, our dental team gets to know your child and adapts our approach.
