4 Steps For Better Dental Care For Your Special Needs Child

At Dental Works, our patients' comfort and confidence are just as important as their teeth. That's why we take great care of both the smile and the person behind it. 1 in 5 households in the U.S. include at least one child with a special health care need. And many general dentists don’t treat children with special needs, we do. 

Parents and caregivers may find it challenging to find a dentist to care for their child because so few dental practices have the specialized knowledge to treat children with special needs. This may be one of the reasons that dental care is the leading unmet health care need among children with special needs, according to the National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center.

So, what do parents and caregivers need to know in order to ensure healthy little teeth and overall well being for children with special needs?

Simple Steps

  • Find a pediatric dentist who makes you and your child comfortable. 
  • Provide your pediatric dentist with information about your child prior to the first visit.
  • Prepare yourself and your child for the first visit.
  • Make dental health a priority at home from day one.

Dental Works serves Scottsdale, Peoria, Chandler, and Mesa, AZ, as well as the surrounding areas. Sedation is available to help your child become better able to receive the dental care he or she needs.
