Individuals with special needs are often at greater risk for tooth decay and dental disease. In many cases, they require specific services and additional care to maintain good oral health. Our office is committed to helping patients with special needs receive the quality care they need in a compassionate, comfortable environment where they can feel safe.

Special needs dentistry is designed to help patients who face physical or mental limitations or other challenges enjoy good overall health. It includes dental services for patients with conditions such as:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Developmental delays
  • Down syndrome
  • Multiple sclerosis

Our pediatric dentists and team work with both the patient and the primary caregiver to create an individualized treatment plan based on the patient’s needs and ability to tolerate treatment. We take the time to explain procedures, address the concerns of both the patient and the primary caregiver, and make sure that the patient feels comfortable. We will happily modify treatments to accommodate specific situations and needs.

If you are the primary caregiver for an adult or child with special needs, we invite you to speak with us about options for their personalized dental care. Please call our office at 801-295-8322 to learn more about special needs dentistry and to make an appointment with our pediatric dentists.
