Patients with Special Needs

Patients with special needs are those who due to physical, medical, developmental, or cognitive conditions require special consideration when receiving dental treatment. This can include people with autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Down Syndrome, spinal cord injuries, and countless other conditions or injuries that can make standard dental procedures more difficult.

Caring for a special needs patient takes compassion, understanding, and often special equipment. While most dentists can accommodate many special needs patients to some degree, our staff have special training to meet the unique needs of these patients and their families. If you, your child, or someone you know has special needs, please consider making Apple Tree your dental home.
