Special Needs Children

Each child is different and at Vingelis & Lee, we pride ourselves on our ability to treat ALL children, regardless of their developmental or health care needs. Our experience in treating children with special needs sets us apart. We know that some children will benefit from some extra care when they visit and we're sensitive to every child's unique requirements for comfort and reassurance. We can accommodate children of any developmental condition, be it with specific appointment times, or if the need arises, with a variety of comforting options.

Sedation Techniques

If it becomes apparent that your child will need some type of sedation for their visit, the professionals at Vingelis & Lee Pediatric and Family Dentistry will determine which method will work best for your child. There are several options:

  • Topical Anesthetics
  • Mild Oral Sedation
  • Conscious Sedation
  • Nitrous Oxide
  • General Anesthetic administered at Lourdes Hospital

Whatever the method, you will be informed in detail about the benefits and risks. You'll also be given a step-by-step instructions for what you need to do to prepare your child prior to the visit and also any care steps that need to be taken when the visit is completed.
