Look for an Understanding Dentist

You want a dentist who supports children with special needs and understands that each child is unique and may act differently every time they visit the dentist. Finding a caring and compassionate dentist who will work with your child to ensure their best oral health is paramount to your child's dental care.

Visit the Dental Office Before Your Child's Appointment

It can be super helpful to have your child visit the dentist office before their actual appointment. This will give your special needs child a chance to meet the dentist and staff, see the dental treatment rooms, and see the dental equipment, too. It can be super beneficial to have your child attend your dental appointment.

Emphasize the Importance of Great Oral Health Care

By emphasizing the importance of great oral health care and how the dentist fits into that goal, you can help your special needs child understand the need for a dental appointment. Model great oral health at home by brushing your teeth and flossing, and having your child do so, too.
