At Little People's Dental, we are pleased to have the training and experience necessary to be a dental office that provides dental care for children who have special needs. In many cases, children with special needs require additional attention and accommodations. Our office is designed with your special needs children in mind, including fun play areas and age-appropriate toys and technology to keep them entertained while they wait to begin their treatment.

Special needs dentistry is designed for caring for children that have mental and physical limitations, including those with:

  • Down’s Syndrome
  • Developmental Delays
  • Behavioral Conditions
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Spina Bifida

Our goal is to accommodate the needs of any child and continue to provide the dental services your child may need. Dr. Thayne Gardner can help keep your child calm by explaining every step of their procedure before actually starting treatment by using a ‘tell, show, do” method. This may not be applicable in every situation, but we often use this method to help ease any anxieties or fears that your child may have about their procedures. During your child’s visit, our pediatric dentist and team can evaluate your child’s dental development and discuss an appropriate care plan with you.
