Seeing special needs patients is what put us on the map 45 years ago. It was a time when these patients had few options for treatment aside from general anesthesia, which is NOT our philosophy and NOT usually necessary as there are risks involved with sedation and anesthesia. We see patients with ADHD, ADD, Autism, Down's Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, Dental Phobia, children needing extra attention, and a variety of different special needs, all without the need for sedation. I feel parents deserve the option to choose the care they feel is best for their children without being required to sedate their child or to use general anesthesia. Have questions? Please feel free to call us.
