Special Needs Dentistry
Dental Care For Patients With Special Health Care Needs
At Pediatric Dentistry of Tracy we love caring for all kids, including those with special healthcare needs. All our dentists are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and have experience working with children with physical, social, and emotional limitations.
Children with special healthcare needs should have routine dental care as well as additional attention. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, pediatric special needs dentistry are those practices that accommodate children with emotional, physical, sensory, cognitive, developmental, or mental impairment. It also accommodates patients who have an orofacial condition or disorder. Children with special health care needs are examined and then treated with various techniques including fillings, cleanings, and dental care. Treatment is provided according to the unique condition of each child.
