If your child has special needs, it’s important to find a dentist who is experienced in working with children with special needs.

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.
