We Offer Dentistry for Children with Special Healthcare Needs
There are many physical and psychological conditions that make receiving dental care highly uncomfortable and many children do not receive appropriate care as a result. This is where special healthcare needs dentistry comes in. When you need a highly skilled special needs dentist in Camp Hill, Cumberland Valley Pediatric Dentistry is here for you.
Children with special healthcare needs due to physical, medical, developmental, or cognitive conditions require special consideration when receiving dental treatment. Each patient is unique so obtaining a complete medical and dental history is key to providing comprehensive dental care to patients with special health care needs. Learning about past dental experiences in addition to a patient’s home oral hygiene care is important. Patients with special health care needs may require medical consultation prior to dental treatment.
