If your child has special needs, it’s important to find a dentist who is experienced in working with children with special needs.
Nearly 20% of children have special needs in the United States, and it’s important for parents to understand the risks that may come without proper dental care, including tooth decay, cavities, or a more serious oral condition.
For many kids with special developmental and physical needs, it can be difficult to teach proper oral hygiene alone. That’s why many families seek general dentists, like the ones at Kool Smiles who are able to meet your children’s needs.
