At Kids Tooth Team, we make it our goal to provide high-quality dental care to every child. That’s why Dr. Alex specializes in treating kids with special needs. At our office, your child can always get the care they need from an experienced pediatric dentist. We provide compassionate care for families in Buda, Kyle, and Manchaca so give us a call today!
Special needs dentistry refers to the practice of treating children who have cognitive or physical disabilities that may make traditional pediatric dentistry difficult.
For example, children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and sensory issues may feel nervous or panicked due to the sights and sounds of a dental office. The treatment of children with disabilities and at-risk medical conditions also falls into special healthcare needs dentistry.
Dr. Alex will take any necessary special steps and precautions to treat kids with cardiac or respiratory issues, and developmental or sensory processing disorders. Special needs dentistry can be used to accommodate these needs, and ensure that the child feels at ease and safe during treatment.
We create a customized treatment plan for every child with special needs at our office. Dr. Alex will consult with you and discuss your child’s unique situation and needs, and take steps to make them feel more comfortable at our office. We greatly appreciate it when parents fill out the medical history online prior to coming into the office so that we can review and plan for your child’s special needs prior to meeting them for the first visit.
Every child with special healthcare needs is an individual, so we rely on parents and guardians to help us create an ideal environment for them by letting us know their likes and dislikes before coming into the office. We also have several videos of the office available that we would recommend showing your child ahead of time so that they know what to expect and can see the office before coming in.
