If you’re the parent or caregiver to a child with special needs, you know first-hand how challenging a trip to the dentist can be. We’re here to help ease concerns and make pediatric dental visits as pleasant as possible.
At Canyon Kids Dental, we have the experience necessary to treat patients with special needs. We offer:
When you call our office to make a pediatric dental appointment, be sure to let us know any special accommodations we may need to make. We’ll help schedule an appointment when your child tends to be the most relaxed (usually first thing in the morning).
Consider giving your child an office “tour” to meet the staff before the actual day of the appointment.
The more you can share with us about your child, the better we can serve your family. The more we know about your child, the more we can adapt care for them and help make their experience as positive as possible.
Our pediatric dental facility isn’t restricted like traditional family dental offices are – our office is designed to accommodate greater flexibility. From the amount of space in our office (for strollers or wheelchairs) to how our appointments are uniquely scheduled, your visit with us will be enjoyable for everyone.
Being a parent or caregiver to a special needs child can be exhausting with specialty visits, therapy appointments, etc. It’s tempting to skip over dental care, but the health of your child’s teeth can significantly affect their overall wellness. In some cases, your child’s special needs may make them prone to dental problems or emergencies. By regularly visiting the pediatric dentist, we can help intercept developing oral conditions that could cause problems in the future such as broken teeth, bleeding gums, abscessed teeth or rampant tooth decay.
Our dedicated team will educate you on ways to prevent the development of common oral problems seen in children with special needs. Are you ready for us to help your child with special needs? Call our pediatric dental office today to schedule a visit!
