Special Needs Patient Care
Pediatric Dentist Midlothian VA
Dr. Patel has found that many children with special needs have unique dental care needs that require a flexible approach. Some have medications or dietary needs that are detrimental to their dental health. Others have physical difficulty with practicing good dental hygiene habits. In some cases, special needs children have been found to have a higher risk of tooth decay, gum disease, tartar buildup, and oral trauma.
We’re here for you and your special needs child. With our years of experience, we work with you to personalize treatment for your child’s individual needs. We provide gentle, compassionate care to ensure your child’s great dental health and positive experience. We offer sedation dentistry in some cases, to allow your child to remain calm and relaxed during treatment.
