Benefits of a Special Needs Dentist
Why see a special needs dentist? There are a number of reasons that it’s a good idea to choose a professional with experience serving special needs children.
First, you’ll know that your child’s particular needs will be addressed. We will discuss your child’s needs with you directly, ensuring we’re aware of any conditions or behaviors that may affect your child’s care.
We can also make accommodations to ensure your child’s visit to our San Diego office is easier, such as eliminating triggers that may affect children with special needs or sensory disorders.
Finally, you’ll get comprehensive treatment planning. Dr. Wendy will put together a plan that will safeguard your child’s dental health, and outline the steps required to ensure their mouth remains healthy in the future. This gives you peace of mind, and ensures your little one can smile brightly for years to come.
Planting Comfortable Visits
Combatting Sensory Sensitivity
At our Sabre Springs office, we can help children with sensory sensitivities in a number of ways. We can dim our lights and turn off background music to decrease sensory stimulation. We can also schedule a visit to the office so that your little one can become more familiar with their surroundings. Prior to their first visit, Dr. Wendy can even set a time to meet, and discuss triggers and common behaviors before your little one even gets into the dentist's chair.
By taking the time to understand your child and their challenges, our team at Sprouting Smiles Pediatric Dentistry can deliver genuine, top-notch care. If you need dental care for a child affected by sensory sensitivity, don’t wait. Contact us now for a consultation with Dr. Wendy in San Diego!
