smiling girl giving 2 thumbs upSpecial needs dentistry, also known as special care dentistry, is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on providing dental care to patients with special needs or disabilities.

When it comes to treating patients with special needs, it can be challenging in a typical dental practice environment.

At NOVA Dental Anesthesia, we’ve created an atmosphere that is welcoming for all patients regardless of any special needs they may have.


How exactly patients are treated at our office can depend on various factors, including the patient’s disability and any limitations, such as being wheelchair-bound, having uncontrolled movements, experiencing anxiety or even having violent tendencies. Based upon these factors, patients may need to be pre-medicated prior to arriving and even receive IV sedation/General Anesthesia during the procedure. At NOVA Dental Anesthesia, we are dedicated to providing the best care possible for your loved one and will take any necessary precautions to ensure their experience is the best it can possibly be.
