Special Needs Dentistry

Quality Dental Care for Our Special Needs Community

For families with children and adults on the spectrum, finding a dentist that understands and can work with them is often a difficult prospect. In fact, many families find themselves being referred to the local medical center for care, even for routine preventive procedures. However, our office frequently works with both kids and adults with special needs.

Anesthesiologist Services and Care

Our team works with trained anesthesiologists to offer an array of calming solutions, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation. We routinely use these options to help patients on the spectrum and with special needs undergo dental cleanings and other general procedures. We can also offer fillings and restorative care with advanced technology and a gentle, calm approach. We gladly work with parents to ensure we understand each patient’s special needs, and personalize our approach to treatment. Dr. Lathrop understands many of these challenges first hand, as his oldest child is autistic. For Dr. Lathrop and the entire Lathrop Dental Center team, ensuring every member of our community obtains the care needed to enjoy optimal oral health is paramount.
