Dental Care for a Special Child
Are special needs required for children with special health care needs?
Most special children have special dental needs because they are very susceptible to tooth decay, disease or trauma. There are some that have physical difficulty with dental habits. But, if the children start dental care early in their lives, they can enjoy a healthy smile.
