Patients with Special Needs

Caring and Sensitive Dental Treatment for Your Child’s Special Circumstances

We work with you to provide a caring and sensitive experience for your child.
Children with special needs may have a difficult time with new experiences, including visiting the dentist. At Growing Smile Pediatric Dentistry and Braces, we will work with your child’s disabilities and plan your time at the office to make your child’s experience comfortable. Here are some tips:
  • Follow your child’s routine schedule as much as possible and schedule appointments around their daily routine.  
  • Request a favorite or familiar team member to assist for your child’s appointment.
  • Communicate with us about your child’s disabilities and any other helpful information.

Advance Preparation Helps Assure Your Child a Positive Dental Appointment

We know that early planning leads to a much more positive experience for special-needs children. Growing Smile is prepared to work with you and your child; we listen to their fears and answer any questions that they may have. We walk them step-by-step through the procedure so that they have knowledge. When you are speaking to your child about their upcoming dentist visit, please feel free to ask us for suggestions to make them more comfortable. We know how important good oral health is for you and your child.
