Special Needs Dentistry in Wauwatosa, WI
If your child has special needs, a trip to the dentist can require special considerations. Whether it is a physical or cognitive disorder, our well-trained and friendly staff would be happy to help accommodate your child. Our practice strives to be the right choice for you and your child.
It is very important to make sure that your child visits the dentist regularly despite their special needs. Often, children with special needs (and children in general) don’t have a clear understanding about why it is important to have good dental habits and the importance of these habits to their long-term health.
Our office wants to make your child’s visit a positive one so that they will be relaxed and ready to visit moving forward. Our staff will help to schedule your appointment at a time when your child will be relaxed and ready to come visit. We’ll also discuss with you ahead of time about the potential of sedation or anything that may help your child stay relaxed during their visit. While there may still be a short wait before you child can head into the exam room, we will do our best to accommodate their needs in any way we can.
We encourage parents to bring activities to keep their child calm and entertained (like a tablet) prior to their appointment. If you have questions about special needs children’s dentistry in Wauwatosa, please contact our office and let our friendly staff assist you.
