Special Needs Dentistry
What Is Special Needs Dentistry?
Special needs dentistry is also referred to as "special care dentistry", because it refers to a specialty of dentistry that focuses on providing dental care to patients with special needs or disabilities. Some patients require additional consideration and accommodations to attend a medical appointment or have dental work performed.
