One of the most important things about pediatric dentistry is the need for patience, kindness and the ability to engage with the children we serve. This is especially so when it comes to our special needs patients. At Kids Klub Pediatric Dentistry, we take our time getting to know your child and helping them (and you) feel comfortable with their care. We go at their pace to allow for flexibility as we take care of their dental needs. Call our dental office at 480-565-6755 if you have any questions about our pediatric special needs dentistry in Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona, and schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Sara Bukhari.
Children with special needs are often at greater risk for tooth decay and dental disease, and in many cases require specific services or additional care in order 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.
Pediatric special needs dentistry is designed to help children who face physical or mental limitations or other challenges enjoy good overall health. It includes dental services for children with conditions such as:
- Autism spectrum disorder
- Cerebral palsy
- Developmental delay
- Down syndrome
- Multiple sclerosis
Our dentist and team work with both the child and the primary caregiver to create an individualized treatment plan based on the child’s needs and his or her ability to tolerate treatment. We take the time to explain procedures, address the concerns of both the child and the primary caregiver, and make sure that the child feels comfortable. We will happily modify treatments to accommodate specific situations and needs.
If you are the parent or primary caregiver of a child with special needs, we invite you to speak with us about options for personalized dental care. Please call our office to learn more about special needs dentistry and make an appointment with our dentist.
