At Southern Stars Pediatric Dentistry, we specialize in providing compassionate and tailored dental care for children with special needs. Recognizing the unique challenges faced by these children, our dedicated pediatric dentists and team are trained to deliver personalized dental services in a nurturing and patient-centered environment. We ensure that every child, regardless of their needs, has access to quality dental care that respects their individuality and promotes their oral health.

What is Special Needs Dentistry?

Special needs dentistry focuses on the oral health care of children with diverse physical, developmental, emotional or medical conditions. This includes children with autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, and sensory processing disorders, among others. Our approach is adaptive and responsive, catering to the specific dental and emotional needs of each child.

Approach to Special Needs Dentistry

Our commitment to special needs dentistry is reflected in our:

  1. Patient and empathetic understanding of each child’s unique situation.
  2. Creation of individualized dental care plans that address specific health and behavioral needs.
  3. Establishment of a calm and soothing environment to minimize anxiety or fear.
  4. Provision of various accommodations, including sedation options, for a comfortable dental experience.
