Scared of the dentist? If so, come to Special Need Dental!

Are you scared of going to the dentist? Does the thought fill you with anxiety? Do you lie awake at night thinking about the high-pitched buzzing of a dental drill?

You’re not the only one. The anxiety you feel about going to the dentist is extremely common.

And guess what? That qualifies as “special needs.”

So what is special-needs dentistry?

Special-needs dentistry focuses on patients with issues that would otherwise prevent them from getting dental care.

Special Need Dental is on a mission to help these patients get the dental care they need. While we welcome patients of all ages and abilities, Special Need Dental is especially focused on helping patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities and challenges.

If you have autism, Down Syndrome, cystic fibrosis, cancer, dementia, Alzheimer’s, PTSD, or general anxiety disorders, our dentists are experienced in treating patients with these challenges. We offer a warm, caring environment where your comfort and peace of mind are our top priorities.

Scared of the Dentist? Not at Special Need Dental!

With this in mind, You’ll have the most comfortable dental experience of your life at Special Need Dental. We offer laughing gas and general anesthesia delivered as a gas through a mask. General anesthesia is safer than IV sedation if a patient experiences any issues during their appointment.
