Dental Care for Kids with Special Needs

We provide services for special needs children. These patients — many of whom have cerebral palsydevelopmental delays, behavioral disorders, or intellectual disabilities — often can't be treated at private clinics because of their physical limitations or multiple medical needs.

Our experienced staff can also provide consultations and referrals for complex oral surgery, comprehensive orthodontics, and treatment under general anesthesia.

Dental Care for Craniofacial Anomalies

Our pediatric dentist, oral surgeon, and orthodontist work with a team of specialists to care for children with craniofacial deformities, such as cleft lip or cleft palate.

These services include:

  • Routine hygiene and restorative procedures before orthodontic or surgical treatment
  • Feeding aids and oral prosthetics for infants
  • Post-orthodontic replacements of missing teeth or related mouth or jaw structures
