Personalized Care for All Children

We are very mindful of sensory sensitivities, which is why our office is quiet and decorated with muted colors and soft lighting. Our office’s ambiance is tranquil and stress-free, and we also offer comforting amenities, such as weighted blankets, headphones, and more. For your family’s additional comfort, we also have private, quiet rooms available. 

One-of-a-Kind Dental Care for Kids with Special Needs

Boy with special needs | Dentist highlands ranchEvery child’s smile is precious and one-of-a-kind, and we know every child has different dental health needs. We understand that children with special needs can experience certain oral health challenges, which is why we create individualized treatment plans. 

For children who may become anxious during their visit, we offer sedation, which can help them feel more safe and relaxed.

We value each child’s unique qualities and personality, and we are here to ensure our beloved patients have the best oral health possible. 


Don’t Rush When You Brush

Children with special health needs can achieve great oral hygiene with the help of their caregivers. Here are some of our suggestions:

  1. Use larger handled toothbrushes for children with limited dexterity
  2. Use specially-formulated fluoride toothpaste and mouth rinses to prevent gum disease
  3. Limit sugar and high carbohydrate-containing foods in the daily diet
  4. Use flossers with handles to make flossing easier.

One of our goals is to help children and their caregivers feel more confident in their ability to practice good oral hygiene. For more tips or information about your child’s dental care, call our dental office and someone from our friendly staff will be happy to help you.  

Children with special healthcare needs deserve extra time and care when it comes to caring for their smiles. Dr. Jon and our entire team are trained to provide special patients with expert dental care that’s tailored to their specific needs and preferences, so they can remain comfortable and happy.
