Our staff members and dentists work closely with parents to develop a personalized dental care plan that meets your child’s unique needs.
We have the patience and understanding of your loved one's medical needs that you look for in a dentist. We are able to assist most of our special needs patients in-office but also do take some of our patients to the hospital in certain circumstances.
Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Services Program
Both of our offices now offer the "Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Services Program". This is a program through Medicaid for up to ages 21.
This program helps:
- children with special health-care needs and
- people of any age with cystic fibrosis.
Because the CSHCN Services Program is the payer of last resort, all applicants must also apply for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and Medicaid.
