Tooth Tip – Children with Special Health Care Needs
Children With Special Health Care Needs
At Pediatric Dentistry of Pleasant Hill, we welcome children with special health care needs and look forward to providing them with a dental home. Our dentists and staff have extensive training and experience in treating children with mental and physical disabilities, as well as sensory, emotional and behavioral impairments. We are committed to being patient and accommodating, and we understand that you, as the parent, know what works best for your child. We want to make sure we provide the best experience possible for your child, regardless of what limitations he or she may have.
Children with special health care needs may be at higher risk for oral diseases throughout their lifetime, but if they have a dental home, they are more likely to receive individualized preventative and routine care, encouraging a lifetime of dental health. All children deserve to have a healthy smile!
