Dental care for children with special needs

Dental care can often fall behind when you have a child with special needs, with their medical care usually taking top priority. But dental care and proper oral health are key elements of caring for your child and helping prevent painful problems later on.

At Coplin Chris DMD, our team is skilled in dealing with various oral conditions that can arise from Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, impaired immune systems, connective tissue disorders and more. We also have techniques available for working with children with sensory disorders, helping them get comfortable with having a toothbrush in their mouth. Whatever condition your child is dealing with, we’ll consult with you and your child, helping determine the best course of treatment.
