Special Health Care Needs

Children with Special Health Care Needs require treatment for their oral health like any other patient. Patients with special needs can benefit from visiting a dentist who is uniquely qualified and trained. Care of patients with special needs is part of the specialty of Pediatric Dentistry. Offices that provide dental care for patients with special needs will usually have increased training for all members of the staff so that they can adequately treat this population of patients. At Orange County Pediatric Dental Group we understand most issues that our patients and their parents, caregivers, guardians, conservators, and family members face daily, and we do everything we can to assist those needs. Patients with special needs require supplemental attention towards their everyday dental care.

Helping Children and Adults With Special Needs

At Orange County Pediatric Dental Group we treat patients with cognitive, emotional, mental, sensory, physical and developmental issues, as well as those who are affected by orofacial conditions and disorders. We provide comprehensive dental care to children and adults with special needs whether they need routine exams and cleanings or they need more extensive care. Our dentists are able to provide a range of services to take care of your child’s dental needs. We consult with your child’s physician when appropriate and have the ability to coordinate certain medical and dental procedures in the operating room. We will work with your child’s therapist to make dental visits more successful. Our dentists understand the best ways to treat and interact with children that have a wide range of conditions. It is our privilege to help children and adults with special needs in any way we can.

Our practice employs appropriate equipment that is tailored to the unique needs of the patients. It is very important to us that our patients and their parents feel comfortable and that their needs and expectations are fulfilled. Raising a child with special needs can be challenging, so finding the right specialist for dental care is one of the most important decisions you will have to make.
