Special Needs Dentistry
The team at Sheer Smiles Pediatric Dentistry is trained to take care of children with special needs. We provide dental care for children with a range of developmental, medical and behavioral needs, including, but not limited to, anxiety, sensory issues, autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, bleeding disorders, and developmental and speech/language delays. They are also a population that is at high risk of dental problems and infections due to having difficulty taking proper care of their teeth. It is very important to find a provider that feels comfortable treating this population based on their unique needs.
Our office is designed for special needs children and adolescents and Dr. Shir and her team have been trained to care for your special needs child!
We advocate for the oral healthcare of all our patients with special health care needs such as Autism spectrum disorder, ADD, ADHD, intellectual disability, developmental delay, Down Syndrome and other special needs. It is often challenging for these patients to visit the dentist due to severe oral aversion, or hypersensitivity.
