Special Needs Dental Care
Specialized training for specialized care
Providing comprehensive preventative, therapeutic and restorative dental care to patients with special healthcare needs is a high priority at Associated Pediatric Dentistry. Children with special needs sometimes face unique dental challenges and we value the unique qualities of each smile we treat at our dental offices. Our goal is to obtain and ensure optimal oral health for all children, regardless of healthcare issues or developmental disability.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry defines special healthcare needs as “any physical, developmental, mental, sensory, behavioral, cognitive, or emotional impairment or limiting condition that requires medical management, healthcare interventions, and use of specialized services or programs.”
Our expert dentists at APD are trained and experienced in providing dental care to young patients who have special needs. We have the experience necessary to provide proper dental care by possessing the specialized knowledge and having increased awareness, adaptation, and accommodative measures to make every patient feel cared for by the best pediatric dentists in Belleville, Glen Carbon, Mount Vernon and O’Fallon. We strive to create an environment where all children feel relaxed and safe while having their dental needs met. Rest assured that your child is in compassionate and caring hands.
