Treatment of Special Needs Patients


The dental team is trained to understand the
specific needs of their patients

Treatment of special needs patients in dentistry requires a unique approach to care. They may have physical, mental, or emotional disabilities that make it difficult for them to receive traditional dental care.

Some examples of common conditions among children with special health care needs are behavioral disorders such as anxiety, ADHD, or autism spectrum disorder, congenital disorders such as Down Syndrome, heart disease, developmental disorders such as cerebral palsy, cognitive disorders such as intellectual disability, and systemic diseases such as childhood cancer or sickle cell disease.

The dental team at KDC is trained to understand the specific needs of these children, and we have the equipment and facilities to provide care that is safe and effective.

Some strategies that we can use to provide dental care for children with special needs include:

• Using positive reinforcement techniques to help the child feel comfortable and reduce anxiety
• Using modified equipment and techniques to accommodate physical limitations
• Providing extra time and patience to help the child feel comfortable and safe
• Communicating clearly and effectively with the child and their caregivers to understand their needs and preferences
• Collaborating with other healthcare professionals such as occupational therapists, speech therapists, and social workers to provide comprehensive care.

It is also important to have a follow-up care plan to ensure that the child's dental health is maintained.
