Special Needs Dentistry for Your Kids and Teens

Smiles 4 Keeps provides high quality dental care for kids and teens with special needs. We operate with the understanding that providing this type of care often requires extra time and attention to detail, and we are committed to providing each patient with the best dental care possible.

What to Expect at Our Office

Our staff is experienced in helping young patients with special needs get the dental care they need. You can be sure that your child or teenager will be in good hands at Smiles 4 Keeps.

  • We have created a safe, caring environment that is conducive to helping our patients obtain a high level of oral health. Parents can feel confident about bringing their children or teens into our office.
  • Patients can come in for an initial visit to help them become familiar with our office and staff, and we can make additional accommodations as needed. We want to make your child’s dental appointments as easy as possible for your entire family.

Sedation Dentistry

Many children and teens have difficulty undergoing lengthy procedures, such as tooth extractions or fillings. In addition, feeling nervous and anxious about going to the dentist is very common. Both of these issues can be even more difficult for children with special needs. This is why we offer safe, effective methods of sedation.

  • With sedation, the patient is given medication that makes him or her feel very relaxed and at ease without actually being put to sleep. Sedation often makes dental appointments much easier, especially for patients with special needs.
  • We offer three forms of sedation: nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation. Your child’s health and best interests will always be our main concern when we recommend sedation.

We are happy to accommodate young patients with special needs and do whatever it takes to make them feel comfortable while we administer top-notch dental care. Please contact our office for more information about the special needs dental care we offer.
