We understand and acknowledge the vast range of possible mental and physical impairments in children. Whether your child is in a wheelchair or suffers from severe autism, we are equipped to accommodate your special needs child. Not only is our office environment physically accessible, but we value the importance of a compassionate and gentle approach with special needs patients. Our team provides thorough, gentle and unhurried care so that they can feel safe and relaxed. If needed, Dr. Hunter is also qualified to provide nitrous oxide, oral sedation and IV sedation to children.

It is critical that special needs children stay on top of their oral health. In many cases, it may be challenging to maintain optimal oral hygiene at home. Therefore, routine dental visits for preventative and/or restorative care is paramount. A healthy mouth supports a healthy body and happier life for your child.
