Special Needs Dentistry

Special Needs Pediatric Dentistry in Lawrence and Lenexa, KS

Special needs dentistry provides that extra gentle and caring approach that special needs children need a little more of. It ensures all the same dental care you’d expect from a skilled pediatric dentist. Still, it also involves unique devices and environmental factors that help those with unique special needs feel more at ease during the procedures.

Providing a positive dental experience is particularly important for children with developmental, physical, and other disorders. They often require more encouragement to follow self-care routines which may be more challenging for them — and Honey Bee’s caring, attentive, and experienced pediatric dentists are eager to make your child’s earliest dental visits that much more special.

Types of Special Needs in Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry for special needs children accommodates many lifelong physical, cognitive, and psychological conditions. The term “special needs” covers a broad category of disorders that require a specialized approach to dental care, just as it involves individualized approaches to general medical services, education, and other social functions.

At Honey Bee Pediatric Dentistry, we’re trained and experienced in the latest techniques and equipment to provide a positive dentist experience for all children. That includes especially children who experience:

  • Intellectual disabilities, like autism and language or speech disorders
  • Developmental disabilities, such as Down’s syndrome or cerebral palsy
  • Physical disabilities that require specialized equipment and other accommodations
  • Behavioral and emotional disorders, including anxiety, social phobias, and hyperactivity
