What If I Have a Special Needs Child?

Posted on 2/21/2022 by Fariba Mutschler
What If I Have a Special Needs Child?Raising a child with special needs presents unique challenges that other parents simply do not face. With that said, helping your child overcome difficulties and providing them with a good quality of life through proper care is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever enjoy as a parent. Accomplishing this goal requires that you find the right team for their medical and dental care needs.

If you have a child with special needs, our professional can help. Pediatric dental care professionals, such as those at our office, are uniquely trained to meet the needs of your child with a customized care plan and a warm, welcoming environment. Experiencing new things can be unsettling for any child, but especially a child with special needs, which makes it all the more important that they are established with professionals that understand their condition.

Why Is Pediatric Dental Care Important?

Pediatric dental care is vital to your child with special needs as their teeth can impact several areas of their life. Whether it means giving them the extra boost of confidence they need in social settings or allowing them to speak and eat properly, a healthy smile is invaluable to their development.

How Are Children with Special Needs Treated?

The treatment approach used for your child will vary based on their specific condition and age. Small children, regardless of condition, often benefit from using a lap visit. A lap visit simply means that you will hold your child in your lap, facing you, while our professionals examine their smile. On the other hand, older children benefit greatly when a relationship of trust is established with the care team.

Regardless of your child's needs, they need a pediatric care team. If you would like more information on how we can serve your child, contact our office today.
My daughter was a little nervous to have her dental work done but everyone in the office was super friendly and very reassuring and that helped her nervousness go away. Thanks for the excellent dental experience. ~ Lilyana G.
