Providing quality dental care for patients with special needs is what put us on the map in San Jose 45 years ago. It was a time when these children with special needs had few options for treatment aside from general anesthesia and sedation, which is NOT our philosophy and NOT usually necessary.
Many parents are not aware that there are other options for treatment or that there are potential risks involved with sedation and anesthesia. Most families find my practice after they have visited a pediatric dentist who will only provide dental care for their child under sedation or general anesthesia and are not comfortable with this approach. At Dentistry for Children & Adults Too! we understand that parents want to avoid the potential risks and costs of anesthesia and sedation and still receive quality dental care for their children. Our practice focuses on working with each patient and their unique needs. 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 general anesthesia or sedation.
