For parents of children with special needs, finding an office able to accommodate and help their kids can be a difficult prospect. We understand, and are proud to offer families in Galveston, TX, access to quality dentistry for special needs patients. Let’s talk about the services we offer our young patients, and the benefits of having a practice located in a hospital setting.
Care for Children With Special Needs
For children with physical complications and other issues that make undergoing care difficult, finding an office with the skills and knowledge to help can be frustrating. However, we provide patients and their families a calm and comfortable atmosphere, with a team experienced in treating patients with special needs. A lack of routine care, such as checkups and cleanings, often means minor issues develop into much more serious problems, from dental infections to tooth loss. If your little one needs to see the dentist, then please let us know. Whether your child needs an exam or a filling, or even a more substantial restoration, we have preventive and restorative care to improve overall oral health.
The Benefits of a Hospital Setting
Dr. Black is a credentialed pediatric dental care provider, and the only one located in the Clear Lake Regional Medical Center. As one of the only dentists in the Galveston area working in a hospital setting, he can offer a number of additional services to help children with special needs. First, we can work with medial anesthesia providers at the hospital to offer anesthesia and dental sedation, ensuring kids with anxiety and others specific issues can remain calm and relaxed throughout the procedure. We complete our procedures in a single visit and work hard to ensure we help your little one feel comfortable, so he or she enjoys their dental experience. We provide dental treatment for kids in Galveston and surrounding communities, including the greater Houston area.
We will also talk to you and your kids about homecare options to help ensure healthier teeth and gums, such as proper brushing and flossing. We also discuss smile healthy snacks and foods, as you may be surprised to find many “healthy foods” such as fruit juice and dried fruit may actually increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. If you have any questions or concerns, then please don’t hesitate to contact us. We can answer your questions and schedule a consultation to start the journey toward a healthier smile. We’re ready to help children with challenging needs!
