Special Needs Dentistry

Dentist for Children with Special Healthcare Needs

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry defines special healthcare needs as “any physical, developmental, mental, sensory, behavioral, cognitive, or emotional impairment or limiting condition that requires medical management, healthcare intervention, and use of specialized services or programs.”

We offer specialty appointments at Sili Smiles for children with special healthcare needs, ensuring a stress-free and calming dental experience tailored to each young smile we treat.

Specifically Trained for Special Needs

Dental care for patients with special health care needs requires specialized knowledge acquired by additional training and increased awareness and attention, adaptation, and accommodative measures beyond routine treatment. Our board-certified Pediatric Dentists have extensive children’s hospital-based training and provide the experience required for your child’s unique developmental and medical health care needs.

Making Accommodations, At Your Child's Pace

We put our patients’ needs first by ensuring that they feel comfortable in our office. Whether turning down the lighting, providing sunglasses, relaxing overhead screen images, headphones, earplugs or other desensitization measures for those with sensory issues, our goal is to make your child feel as calm and comfortable as possible.

Sedation Options

Sedation dentistry is another popular option for those with special needs. We offer options to help your child stay calm or sleep throughout their visit. For more information on sedation dentistry options, you can view our sedation options or contact our office with any questions you may have.
