The team at Pearland Pediatric Dentistry is trained to take care of children with special needs. We provide dental care for children with a range of developmental, medical and behavioral needs, including, but not limited to, anxiety, sensory issues, autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, bleeding disorders, and developmental and speech/language delays.
Dental diseases can be prevented with accurate, up-to-date knowledge about the importance of good oral health and nutrition, proper oral hygiene care, and preventive services performed early in a child's life. If left untreated, dental disease can lead to lifelong oral health problems. Early intervention, including a dental visit by age one, can help prevent dental disease from becoming one more special health care need for a family to address.
