Special Needs Dentist | Special Needs Dentistry
Going to the dentist can be scary for a child with special needs. Children with special health care needs (SHCN) need oral treatment like everyone else, but they benefit the most from seeing a pediatric dentist who specifically caters to these patients. Dr. R. James Richardson and the Children Dentistry Team have acquired expert knowledge, intensive professional training, and vast experience that make them uniquely capable to serve children and families through special needs dentistry.
Our highly trained dental team are honored to work with families and children with a wide range of special health care needs. We are prepared to treat children of all ages who have any physical disabilities, mental, psychological or emotional disorders. Our practice includes a large population of special needs patients, including numerous patients diagnosed with ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, Down Syndrome, cleft lip and palate, cerebral palsy, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and many other conditions which can make their dental care difficult.
We encourage parents to bring their kids for “happy visits” before the day of their first appointments to tour the office and meet our team. We ask parents in advance about each child’s special health concerns and habits, including what relaxes or upsets them so we can tailor each appointment according to your child’s special needs. We work with parents on the limits and risks of various techniques, and have dentistry chairs and equipment that are designed to cater to all special needs children.
Each patient, no matter what his or her special needs, is treated equally and with respect at our office. Our dental team takes pride in our abilities to care for special-needs patients, and we continually educate ourselves in order to serve patients with the highest standard of care.
