Special Needs Children
Pediatric Dentists are specially trained to handle all different types of children, which includes special needs children. Pediatric dentists have two or more years of advanced training beyond dental school. Their education as specialists focuses on care for children with special needs. With the extra years of schooling and training, pediatric dentists are able to treat patients with special needs. Special needs children should get their routine exams and cleanings, starting as early as their first birthday. A first dental visit by the first birthday will start your child on a lifetime of good dental health. The pediatric dentist will take a full medical history, gently examine your child’s teeth and gums, then plan preventive care designed for your child’s needs.
