Highly Trained in Special Needs Dentistry

Every member of the DPD Smiles team is highly trained in working with special needs patients, from our doctors and hygienists to our office staff. We understand the importance of compassionate, patient, accommodating care for our special needs DPD Rockstars.

This is why we employ a series of strategies and techniques to help your child’s dental visits go as smoothly as possible.

Flexibility

First, we take every measure possible to prevent the use of physical restraints. Depending on your child’s unique needs, we may use soothing music, one of our therapy dogs, aromatherapy, or sensory toys to keep your child calm and relaxed during his dental treatment.

Multiple Appointments

Our Glen Ellyn special needs pediatric dentist is also willing to split appointments into multiple sessions if needed. If your child can only sit for ten minutes at a time, we will schedule as many appointments as necessary to ensure they receive high-quality dental care at their pace.

Sedation Dentistry

The DPD Smiles team also offers sedation dentistry, including laughing gas, general anesthesia, and IV sedation. Each form of sedation dentistry has its unique benefits, and we can help you select the best method by learning more about your child and their needs. Schedule with DPD Smiles for a trusted, experienced children's sedation dentist.

Painless, Silent Laser Treatment for Cavities

We understand that loud sounds and uncomfortable sensations are often triggers for our special needs Rockstars. This is why we’re so excited to be able to offer laser dentistry treatment for cavity repair. Our laser technology makes it possible to treat cavities and other common dental problems without causing any of the stress or fear normally involved in dental procedures. No drills, no shots needed!
