Special Needs

Picture of special needs boyOur practice values each child as an individual. We understand that children with special health care needs require a dental practice that is open and understanding. We are aware that they often experience a higher risk of oral diseases with potential effects to their overall quality of health throughout life. Whatever your child’s circumstance, all of our patients are treated on a case by case basis with particular emphasis on their individual needs. Our staff is specially trained and committed to:


Each visit begins by listening to the special circumstances of each child. We understand that parents and caregivers know their children better than anyone else. By listening to you and patiently answering your questions we are able to work together in providing the best possible care for your child.


No two children are the same. Instead of asking our patients to adapt to an unchanging structure of treatment, we strive to remain flexible with treatment options by balancing the safety and emotional well-being of each patient with effective dental care.


Our staff truly cares about each of our patients. Further, our practice is equipped to care for children with special health care needs because of expertise gained through additional training. We chose pediatric dentistry as a dental specialty because we are passionate about helping children begin a lifetime of good oral hygiene. This passion is especially present in our treatment of children with special health care needs.

A special place for special kids.
