We can all agree that going to the dentist as a kid caused quite of bit of anxiety. Well, patients with an ASD exhibit higher amounts of anxiety when visiting the dentist. The fear of the unknown comes into play along with the many different sounds they will hear. It can cause a child with autism to have an overwhelming sense of anxiety.

Our main goal is to make your child as comfortable as possible before their dental appointment. A pediatric dentist understands this and will take the time to meet with you and your child in order to learn more about them and develop the best plan for your child.
