Special Needs Dentistry
There are many children with special needs ranging from developmental disabilities to behavioral issues and even physical limitations. Such examples include mild anxiety disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy. These children require extra time and care when it comes to their oral health needs.
Finding the right dentist for your child requires balancing your child’s needs with the dentist’s experience. Call and schedule a consultation with Baker Pediatric Dental Care and find out how your childs’ specific needs can affect his or her oral health. Describe the special supports your child may need and ask whether the dentist can provide them. Pediatric dentists are trained to provide dental care to special needs patients, and to tailor care around your child’s special needs to make sure they are comfortable during their dental appointment.
