Kids 360 Pediatric Dentistry is dedicated to delivering exceptional quality dental care for our patients and their families. We work to ensure that we can provide our patients with the support they need to get the care they deserve. We understand that every child is unique, and our care experience must be tailored to their specific needs. This is especially true with children with special needs, who often have special challenges to overcome when receiving care. We’re here to provide the level of support the child and their caregiver need to make their treatment experience a positive one.
How We Support Our Special Needs Patients
We take special care to approach each of our patients as the unique and special individuals they are. We know that each of them has a different comfort level with dental visits, and some may even be afraid or uncertain of what to expect. Special needs children need to be approached with an understanding of their condition and the associated needs. We want them to know that they’re a valued member of our patient family and that they’ll be accommodated without judgment. This is all part of our dedication to providing a dental environment that is accommodating to all our patients. To provide this environment, we’ve provided the following options and accommodations:
- Desensitization Visits – When children are experiencing a new environment for the first time, they often find it intimidating. To overcome this feeling, we can arrange practice visits where they meet the staff, tour the facility, and become comfortable with the equipment and the staff. Taking things slowly can help your child be more comfortable while they receive care.
- Tailored Dental Care – We adapt our methods to meet the needs and sensitivities of our patients. We consider their capability, emotional readiness, and comfort level when providing treatment. By taking the time to truly listen to your child, we can understand and respond to their needs and emotions.
- Sedation Dentistry – Dentistry can be uncomfortable and scary for patients of any age, especially if they’ve had a bad experience previously. When necessary, we can provide professionally supervised sedation options that will ensure a safe and comfortable experience for them.
- Special Equipment – We can provide adaptive devices that ensure that your child’s dental care can be performed safely and effectively. These devices can include specially designed chairs and tools suitable for addressing various needs.
Along with ensuring that your child’s oral health care needs are met, our primary concern is ensuring that each patient’s experience is comfortable and positive. By making our dental office and the care we provide universally accessible, we ensure that your child’s preventative and restorative care needs are met. We can provide care for children with cognitive, sensory, physical, developmental, behavioral, and emotional concerns.
