Why Choose Olga Kandov, DMD – Brite Smiles for Special Needs Dentistry?

Special Needs Can Present Unique Oral Health Challenges

Children with both intellectual and developmental disabilities, including those with ASD, cerebral palsy, sensory processing disorder, and more, often face unique challenges when it comes to maintaining good oral health. This can include having a higher risk of orthodontic issues like malocclusion and crowding, as well as gum disease and cavities.

Some conditions may require taking medications that either contain sugar or have side-effects like dry mouth, which can also increase their risk of experiencing certain dental problems. By choosing a family dentist who understands these unique barriers, like Dr. Kandov, your little one can enjoy improved dental health.
