Individual and Family Special Needs Dental Care

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), special health care needs are defined as any person who benefits from “specialized knowledge, increased awareness and attention, adaptation, and accommodative measures beyond what are considered routine.”

Examples of areas in which patients may require special needs dentistry include:

  • Behavioral disorders
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Developmental impairment
  • Emotional impairment
  • Mental disability
  • Physical disability

It’s vital that no matter what special needs patients have, that a customizable dental care plan is provided according to their specific needs. As we mentioned earlier, our dentists and hygienists have advanced, specialized training to accommodate a wide array of special needs dental requirements. And, our comprehensive dental services are available for individuals and families with special needs—of all ages.
