Special Needs Patients
Services For Our Special Needs Patients
Our pediatric dentists are trained to treat special needs patients, including medically or physically compromised and very young children. These patients may need special aids in accomplishing their dental treatment. We offer nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and in some cases, general anesthesia. Pediatric anesthesiologists from Children’s Hospital, Oakland, come into our office on specific days and administer general anesthesia. This is a great advantage when medically compromised or young children need extensive treatment and are unable to cooperate.
Please feel free to contact us so that we can discuss your child’s individual needs.
There are some saints out there! Mothers, fathers and foster parents who care for extremely disabled and medically compromised children never cease to amaze us with their patience , devotion and love. Our whole staff is humbled by these exceptional people.
