Special Needs Dentistry
Everyone smiles in the same language. Unfortunately, it can be hard finding a pediatric dentist if your child has special needs. Our pediatric dentists have extensive training in treating infants, children, and teens of all types of special needs and medical conditions.
Our special needs dentists and their staff understand that it may take several visits before your child feels comfortable in the dentist’s chair. Our team will work with you to meet you and your child's needs. It is our priority to help your child feel safe while receiving the pediatric dental care they need to maintain a healthy smile.
About Special Needs Dentistry
Children with special needs may not be able to sit for long periods of time while we clean their teeth or place a filling. For example, children with autism can become overwhelmed by breaks to their normal routines, bright lights, and strange noises. We are able to work at a pace that is comfortable for your child so they feel safe during treatment. Our dentists also offer sedation dentistry like laughing gas and conscious sedation.
Does your child have behavioral issues that prevent them from getting the pediatric dental care they need? In extreme cases or dental emergencies, we can treat your child under general anesthesia at St. Joseph Mercy Canton or the Children’s Hospital of Michigan.
