Special Needs Dentistry
Special Needs Dentistry in Garden City, NY
At Pediatric Dentistry of Garden City, we believe that all children are unique and there is no cookie cutter approach that will meet the individual needs of our patients.
Our Garden City special needs dentist understands that children who have a disability, or any condition that interferes with their ability to tolerate or comply with instructions while in the operatory, need an especially gentle approach.
Flexibility and Understanding
Dr. Stacey Reynolds takes her time and is extremely patient in the way she treats her dental patients with special needs. Dental treatments can be broken up into multiple appointments as needed. The exams, x-rays, and cleaning would be divided up as the patient can tolerate. On the other hand, if a patient requires general anesthesia, we will design a treatment plan that will accomplish as much as possible at that time.
We want to be sure our patients receive the care that they need and will accommodate your difficult schedule. At Pediatric Dentistry of Garden City, we know you have enough to juggle without having to worry that you will not be able to get a convenient appointment or will be kept waiting. Our special needs dentist understands your unique circumstances and works hard to make each of your visits with us positive.
Committed to Dental Health for All our Patients
In addition to the routine exams and cleanings that your child needs, your child may be more susceptible to certain conditions. Dr. Reynolds is highly trained and experienced in detecting possible complications that interfere with their ideal smile and can advise you on your options for more extensive care.
Our first priority is the overall health of your child’s teeth and gums. We design their treatment plan to help them achieve their optimal dental health, and when they are cavity free and their gums are in good condition, we can move on to any other needs your child may have.
Phase one Orthodontics
We provide interceptive orthodontics for children with a higher risk of malocclusion. This can involve gently expanding the palate to allow for the unhindered emergence of permanent teeth, partial braces, active retainers, and more. Again this treatment allows for appropriate customization to adapt to any child that can benefit from this procedure and is generally performed between the ages of six and ten.
Building a Relationship Based on Trust
Every parent needs to feel confident in the professionals who deal with their child. This is especially true for parents of special needs children. Our pediatric dental practice in Garden City, NY is dedicated to our patients’ complete oral health. We work to earn your hard earned trust and are dedicated to delivering the best results for your child while keeping them as comfortable and happy as possible.
