SPECIAL HEALTH CARE NEEDS

Specifically Trained for Special Needs

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry defines special healthcare needs as “any physical, developmental, mental, sensory, behavioral, cognitive, or emotional impairment or limiting condition that requires medical management, healthcare intervention, and use of specialized services or programs.” Whether your child’s condition is congenital, developmental, or the result of disease or trauma, we can provide guidance and raise awareness of their special dental care needs.

We offer specialty appointments at Kids By the Bay Dental for children with special healthcare needs. Our goal is to accommodate and provide these patients with a stress-free and calming dental experience, and we value the unique qualities of each young smile we treat. 

Making Accommodations, At Your Child's Pace

Parents are recommended to cancel/reschedule an appointment a minimum of 24 hours prior to its scheduled time. After three (3) missed/broken appointments we will not schedule any further appointments.

Sedation Options

Sedation dentistry is another popular option for those with special needs. We offer options to help your child stay calm or sleep throughout their visit. For more information on sedation dentistry options, you can view our sedation options or contact our office with any questions you may have.
