What if my child has special needs?

At Capital Pediatric Dentistry we welcome children with special needs. Special needs children may be at a higher risk for dental decay due to special diets, special medications, or difficulty in maintaining good oral hygiene. Dr. Crippen has extensive training and experience in treating patients, of all ages, with special needs. Each patient will receive the extra time they need to ensure all aspects of oral health are evaluated.

Please inform our staff of any special healthcare needs your child may have so we may schedule the appropriate amount of time for their appointment.

Complete safety & Comfort

Sedation dentistry is not just for anxiety.

All of your dental work can be done in a single visit in a safe & fun environment.

This type of dentistry is great for those who have anxiety, a low pain threshold, can’t sit still in a dentist’s chair, someone with very sensitive teeth, those with a strong gag reflex or anyone needing an extensive amount of dental work. Patients with special needs due to physical, medical, developmental or cognitive issues also need and deserve special consideration.
