Complete special needs pediatric dentistry

Children with special needs often face additional challenges when it comes to receiving dental care. Finding a dentist who can not only provide care to patients who have special needs can be a challenge, but Bright Pediatric Dentistry is here for you.

We specialize in helping children with special needs and provide care for children who have conditions such as Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, autism, and other needs communities not listed not here. If you have questions about the best care for your child, call us at 704.645.7000.

Regardless of the needs, our goal remains the same, and that is to provide the best dental care they need for healthy smiles.

Helping your child overcome barriers

It can be challenging for children with special needs to be able to brush their teeth on their own. Teaching the basics of brushing can often present obstacles. Our team works with parents and caregivers to help your amazing children ensure they receive the care they require.

We have developed a proven five-step program that determines the level of care they need. After which we can provide additional specific recommendations for your child.

  1. Determine patients’ abilities by asking them to demonstrate how they would brush their teeth – and provide specific recommendations based on the results.
  2. Provide a hands-on demonstration that shows parents and caregivers the best way to brush their children’s teeth.
  3. Modify toothbrush handles to facilitate ease of use.
  4. Provide other dental aides such as floss holders and unique toothbrushes.
  5. Recommend preventative fluoride and antimicrobial treatments in addition to supporting the child’s oral health.

Discover a stress-free environment

Many children who are neurodivergent can find the sights, sounds, and even lighting of a dentist’s office overwhelming. This can manifest in stress and make it harder for your child to receive the care they need.

Children with special needs need to feel safe in their environment before they have their appointment, and it is our goal to build that trust.

Bright Pediatric Dentistry will work to minimize stress and create a comfortable environment. If you have questions about a treatment plan, call Bright Pediatric Dentistry today!
