Special Needs Dentistry

One of the things that makes Grottoes Family Dentistry stand out is our special needs dentistry in Grottoes, Virginia. Our dentists, Dr. Dylan Hall and Dr. Spenser Briggs, and our team want everyone to have a healthy smile, and if you have a family member that has special needs or if you are a caregiver, call our office at 540-249-4242 to schedule a visit.

Patients with special needs are often at higher risk for tooth decay and dental disease, and they often require specific care to maintain their oral health. We are dedicated to providing quality, compassionate care to each one of our patients, and we work hard to ensure everyone feels safe and comfortable under our care, no matter the circumstance.

Special needs dentistry is designed to give patients who face physical or mental limitations the care they need to maintain a healthy smile and good oral health. Special needs dentistry involves care for patients with conditions such as the following:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Developmental delays
  • Down syndrome
  • Multiple sclerosis

Our dentists and team work together with both the patient and their primary caregiver to develop a personalized treatment plan based on their health needs and their ability to undergo treatment. We will take the time to get to know the patient, thoroughly explain the procedures and what they can expect, and address any concerns. We can modify treatment based on the patient’s needs and capabilities.

If you have any questions about special needs dentistry, we recommend you call or visit our office to learn more about the options available. We are excited to care for your loved one’s smile!
