Dental care for children with special needs can seem challenging. However, we welcome you to contact us with any questions that you might have. We are happy to help you and walk with you every step of the way. Here are a couple of the most common questions that we answer:

How Do I Prepare My Child for an Appointment?

Take the time to sit down and talk to your child about the dental visit and why it is important. Let them ask questions and explain things to them in a calm and relaxed way. More importantly, remember to keep a positive attitude. Your child is more likely to feel calm and at ease if you are excited about the visit as well.
