Dental Care for Every Child

Kids Tooth Team aims to deliver high-quality dental care tailored to each child. Our team specializes in treating patients with special needs. We provide compassionate care so that every child receives the individualized treatment they require from our experienced pediatric dentists. Our South Austin office location allows us to conveniently serve families in the area.

What Is Special Needs Dentistry?

Special needs dentistry involves treating children with cognitive or physical disabilities that can make routine dental care challenging. For instance, sights and sounds may cause anxiety for kids with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or sensory issues. It also encompasses accommodating developmental, cardiac, respiratory, and sensory processing disorders.

We take necessary precautions to ensure children with complex medical needs feel completely at ease and safe under our care. Special needs dentistry allows us to adapt our approach and environment to best serve each child’s unique needs.

How Do You Accommodate Special Needs?

Our South Austin pediatric dentists create customized treatment plans tailored to each child’s unique needs. Our team consults with parents and guardians to discuss specific situations and steps to help their child feel comfortable. We greatly appreciate receiving medical histories online beforehand so we can prepare accommodations in advance. Since each child has individual needs, we rely on families to inform us of their likes, dislikes and recommendations to create an ideal environment. We also have office tour videos to show children what to expect, allowing them to see everything before their visit. Accommodating special needs requires collaboration, so please share any preferences or concerns.
