Children with Special Needs

When caring for children with special needs, our overall approach to dentistry doesn't change, but the treatment plan may be slightly different to accommodate any issues you may be facing at home; e.g., brushing, flossing, dietary concerns and addressing aversions to food textures and tastes, etc. We are always empathetic to the needs of the caregiver as well as the child and show support in any way we can.

Dr. Clayhold's empathy and advanced training allows his to read a child’s body language to help them even when your child can’t express those feelings themselves. The team at Doctor Scott Clayhold has been trained to help every child remain as calm as possible throughout their visit.

Our office’s treatment rooms are designed to accommodate children with special needs so we can administer care in an environment that's accessible and comfortable for your child.

By visiting Doctor Scott Clayhold, you can rest assured that your child will be in the care of someone who can understand them and give them the gentle, respectful treatment they deserve.
