Dr. Davis has been our dentist for almost 10 years. Each visit is a pleasant one with lots of smiles and friendly faces. Her team is responsive and caring. She responded to an emergency dental situation over the weekend within 30 minutes, called in a prescription, and saw us first things the next business day. We are more than pleased with Dr. Davis and the Healthy Smiles team!

All children should have access to a warm and welcoming dental office so they can receive the oral health care they need. However, if you’re parenting and caring for a special needs child, you may feel that finding the right dentist is difficult. Fortunately, there are many pediatric dentists who have experience with special needs children. Here is how to find the right dentist for your child.

A child with special needs may be more fearful or have anxiety about visiting the dentist. However, if you go to the dentist’s office before your first appointment, you can help your child prepare for the visit. Additionally, allow them to get used to the dentist and see how they interact with the dental team. Both you and your child can build familiarity with the office. You can meet the staff and explore the surroundings without worrying about cleanings or treatments on that first trip.

Look for accessibility features and accommodations.

Does your child use a wheelchair or have other mobility issues? Do cramped, dark, or loud spaces increase anxiety in your child? Communicate these needs to the dentist to determine if they can accommodate your child’s needs. Look for ramps, wide doors, and a dental team that will work with you to provide an accessible and comfortable space.

Check the website for information about special needs dentistry.

Many pediatric dentists have experience with children who have special requirements and needs. However, if you want to find a dentist who is trained and knowledgeable, look for content on their website that is specific to special needs children. This information can indicate that the dentist welcomes all children to their practice and cares about their needs and preferences.

Inquire about sedation options.

A dentist who works with children with special needs understands that they may struggle to sit still or remain calm during routine dental cleanings or other treatments and procedures. Ask the dentist about available sedation options to help your child relax. A pediatric dentist with plenty of sedation options is focused on providing the best, individualized care for your child.
