Many times special children also have special dental needs. Some special children are at high risk for tooth decay, gum disease, or oral trauma. Research shows that dental disease is preventable-as long as the dental care is started early and followed through consistently. At Pediatric Dentistry of Savannah, our mission is to customize a prevention plan to match the special needs of your children, in order to maintain their healthy smile for life.
Pediatric dentists have two or more years of advanced training beyond dental school. Dr. Cara's education as a specialist focused on working with pediatricians and medical specialists. In doing so, she acquired specific skills to care for children with special needs. These skills include a comprehensive education in behavior management, sedation, and anesthesia techniques. After the initial visit, Dr. Cara will select a technique based on the specific health needs of your child, and discuss the benefits, limits, and risks of that technique with you and your child's health care specialist.
