We Care For All Children
Special Needs Dentistry in kingstowne
At Kingstowne Dental Specialists, Dr. Courtney provides pediatric dental care for every child. We pride ourselves on serving children in our community who have special needs. We take your child’s unique needs into account during their treatment, and we do everything we can to make sure they feel comfortable, welcome, and cared for throughout their entire appointment.
Understanding Special Needs Dentistry
Common Special Needs
The term “special needs” encompasses a wide variety of patients, and includes all children who may have special needs due to their physical, cognitive, developmental, and medical conditions. This includes children who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), who have limited movement abilities or muscular disorders, or who have suffered spinal injuries or paralysis, as well as children with cognitive impairments. We will work with you and your family to ensure that we address your child’s needs in a way that makes you both comfortable because we believe that every dental appointment should be a positive experience.
We Treat Each Patient As An Individual
How We Treat Special Needs Patients
If your child has special healthcare needs, Dr. Courtney will get to know you and your child during a consultation and discuss any specific preferences that you may have for their care at our office. Our entire team will work to develop an understanding of your child’s unique needs and their condition, so that we can provide truly individualized, personalized care. Our goal is to make you and your child feel comfortable and at home at Kingstowne Dental Specialists.
A Relaxing Dental Experience
Our Sensory Sensitive Office
At our sensory sensitive office, we do our best to keep things quiet and ensure that patients with ASD and other processing or sensory sensitivity disorders can remain calm in a welcoming, friendly environment. We do not play music, and we keep our lights low and offer sunglasses to all patients. We make every effort to reduce sensory stimuli and ensure that your child will not be overwhelmed by their trip to our office.
