Proud To Treat Patients With Special Needs
At Emerald Dental, we find it important that our practice is a place that is welcoming to all. We understand how frustrating it can be to have a dental practice that does not meet all of your needs and your family’s needs. If you have certain circumstances in your family, it can feel like trial and error before you find a dental home that works for your entire family.
We believe that everyone deserves quality dental care, and we proudly accommodate patients with special needs, including those with intellectual and physical disabilities. We are passionate about patient comfort and want everyone to feel welcome in our office, regardless of age or ability. Our caring and compassionate doctors and team have years of experience working with special needs patients, especially children, and can accommodate most disabilities.
Children With Special Needs
To make your experience as positive as possible, we request that you contact our office before your visit to let us know that your child has special needs and to let us know any important information that may be beneficial. We want to create an environment that will make them feel comfortable and relaxed so they can get the dental care they need. We also recommend bringing a favorite stuffed animal, small toy, or blanket to help them feel more secure when they are in our care. If your child wears headphones or likes to listen to music, that would also be useful to help with the sounds of the office and examination room. If your child is anxious or has difficulty relaxing, we can also discuss the possibility of using sedation dentistry.
If you or a loved one require special accommodations and are looking for a new dental home that will be accepting and able to work with your needs, be sure to contact our office located in Wilmington, DE. We would love to speak with you about what you are looking for and schedule an appointment to meet with you soon. We look forward to speaking with you!
