Special Needs

Highly Personalized dental care

Accomodations for Individual Needs

Each patient is a unique individual with special needs. In addition to their physical care and treatment we ensure that each child feels safe and comfortable. We approach each child with a positive, “can do” attitude without pushing the boundaries of their own comfort level. We move slowly and purposely towards involving your child in the process and encourage them to express what might cause them distress. Most importantly we encourage “get to know us” visits regularly so that your child feels comfortable in our office.

Frequently Asked Questions about Special Needs

What is a pediatric Dentist?

A pediatric dentist has an extra two years of specialized training after dental school and is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years. The very young, pre-teens and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with behavior, guiding their growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. With the additional education, pediatric dentists have the training which allows them to offer the most up-to-date and thorough treatment for a wide variety of pediatric dental procedures.

Emergencies 24/7/365

Emergency care is always a priority.  We hope that your child will never experience a dental emergency, but if it happens, we want you to know what to do.  We have an on-call doctor 24 hours/seven days/week for emergency situations for patients of record.

Call Loma Linda Children’s Dental Group office immediately for any trauma to your child’s teeth or jaw.  If your child’s teeth are broken or knocked out, put them in milk or your child’s own saliva. Avoid rinsing the teeth with water or wiping/scrubbing the teeth.

In the rare event in which you do not hear from us, please call Loma Linda University School of Dentistry Pediatric Clinic at (909) 558-4689 and you will be connected to the Emergency Room where a pediatric dental resident can help.
