Parents of children with special needs sometimes worry about whether their child will tolerate undergoing regular dental care. However, early and consistent oral care is very important for your child's oral and overall health, and should not be put off.
If you're the parent of a child with special needs who you think may not do well in the dentist's chair, the Smile Town Dentistry team is here to to help. Dr. Diya Chadha has a specialty in pediatrics and special needs care from Lutheran Hospital in Brooklyn, New York.
Whatever the nature of your child's needs, we can meet them, and provide the quality dental care necessary for a life full of healthy smiles.

Sedation Options For Children With Special Needs
Each child is different, and some kids may have a harder time coping with sustained dental care than others do. Some children feel frightened or nervous, and others have emotional or physically barriers that make treatment more challenging.
For children in these situations, Smile Town Dentistry offers many safe, effective sedation and anesthesia options to help ensure they get the dental care they need.
