Special Needs Dentistry
Do you have young children or a loved one with special needs who are unable to cooperate for dental care?
Developmentally disabilities, special needs, and medically compromised individuals suffer from an array of dental problems just like everyone else! From dental abscesses to throbbing pain, cavities and gum disease; everyone requires individual attention and dental care. We are here to help you and your loved one here at The Dental Anesthesia Center.
Dr. Hoffmann and Dr. Thoms complete dental procedures for patients with Special Needs requiring general anesthesia or sedation. Individuals with special physical or mental needs can receive complete dental care in a comfortable setting. Patients with special needs can have a thorough exam that includes taking x-rays and receiving a dental cleaning with general anesthesia. The Dental Anesthesia team is compassionate and here to help patients accomplish dental care that they may have never had before.
