Dr. Olga Kandov and our friendly and welcoming team have all of the skills and experience necessary to help children with physical and intellectual disabilities feel right at home during their next dental checkup and cleaning. We’re happy to meet the needs of your little one so they have a positive experience, just call us ahead of their appointment to let us know what would help them feel more comfortable.
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 in Doylestown who understands these unique barriers, like Dr. Kandov, your little one can enjoy improved dental health.
