The entire team at Enchanted Forest Pediatric Dentistry deeply enjoys working with special needs children and showing them that dental care is nothing to be afraid of. Thanks to Dr. Rojas' expertise, friendliness and patience, she's able to conduct exams and, in many cases, clean their teeth. Our practice hase the ability to conduct treatments whether the patient is functional or not, utilizing the range of sedation techniques that we offer. If you have a special child at home, we can’t wait to meet them, so contact us today to schedule an appointment.
The first thing we do for special needs patients is try to help them feel comfortable in our office. From there, we work with parents to put together a treatment plan to address any issues that might be present, and we also formulate an effective and practical hygiene plan for home. When all of these elements come together, taking care of a child’s smile becomes much easier, plus many problems can be prevented before they even start.
We see a lot of children who are particularly sensitive to certain sights, smells, and sounds that are common in a dental office, which is why we’re always happy to make accommodations when needed. We can turn down the lights, make sure there is a calming scent, and ensure a quiet and calm atmosphere so your child feels right at home.
Before you and your child come to see us, it would really help if you could call us beforehand so we’re prepared to accommodate them. Please tell us about any limitations, sensitivities, or fears they may have so we can keep this in mind during their appointment. No ask is too big or too small, and we’re eager to work with you to make the dental experience as productive and positive as possible.
