Special Needs, Autism, and Your Child’s Dental Team
If your child has special needs, you want to make sure they get the best care from a dental team trained to accommodate these needs. While their dental care needs won’t necessarily be different, the method in which that care is given will be. You know your child better than anyone else, which is why we partner with you to learn about your child and their specific needs to create a customized treatment plan and approach just for them. We are your specially trained dental team in Omaha, providing care to those with sensory processing disorders and autism.
Dental + Behavioral Skills Go Hand In Hand
For parents of a child on the autism spectrum, there are many activities that can be difficult and stressful for you and your child, including regular dental hygiene and dental visits. You want to ensure your child has the best experience possible which is why so many parents choose Pediatric Dental Specialists in Omaha to care for their kid’s dental needs. Proper dental management of an autistic child requires understanding both pediatric dentistry and behavioral guidance theories for autism. Our team is trained in both areas so we can be flexible and modify our treatment approach based on our child’s specific needs. You can be confident knowing your child will get the best care from a highly trained team in a facility designed just for them.
Calm, Comfortable Visits
Some children have dental anxiety which this is perfectly normal. For these children, including those with special needs like sensory processing disorder or autism, they may have a better outcome using some form of sedation during their appointment. Our team is trained in administering sedation for children of all ages and needs. Learn more about our sedation options here. We are happy to discuss it with you to help you weigh the pros and cons.
