Pediatric Dental Care for Special Needs Children | Cool Kid Dental
Pediatric Dentistry & Braces for Children & Teens

Posted by & filed under Pediatric Dentistry

If you’re the primary caregiver of a child with special needs, you should understand how important it is to pay close attention to your child’s oral health and hygiene. Oftentimes, children with special needs have a hard time brushing and flossing their teeth on their own, which can put them at greater risk of tooth decay or dental diseases. In other cases, your child may be on medication that is detrimental to their dental health. Long story short, it’s important that you pay attention to your child’s oral health and get them the pediatric dental care that they need.

That’s where our team at Cool Kid Dental comes into play. We have plenty of experience in providing care for special needs patients, from our friendly staff all the way up to Dr. Frank C. Pettinato II, DMD, MS, our Board-Certified pediatric dentist.

In fact, we offer great ways for your child to relax and be entertained during their time with us, such as warm blankets, TVs, and video games in treatment rooms, as well as choices of flavored toothpaste and fluoride.
