Inclusive Dentistry in Sioux Falls

Child with special needs

What is Inclusive Dentistry?

Inclusive dentistry means that we treat kids of all abilities! We provide care for all patients regardless of whether or not they have limited-mobility, cognitive or emotional disabilities, or if they’re dentistry intolerant. No child should be denied dental care, and no two patients are the same. That is why we provide dentistry that is tailored to each child’s needs in Sioux Falls. Our team is patient, compassionate, and understanding. We will get to know you and your child to understand how best to care for them and their smile.

How do you treat dentistry intolerant patients?

It is our goal to ensure you and your child feel comfortable and confident during every visit. We are more than happy to accommodate your family’s unique needs. We always do our best to ask questions to better understand your preferences, but if there is ever anything we can do to help you and your little one feel more at-home, don’t hesitate to let our team know!

Introductory Visits

We always recommend starting with an introductory visit. This will help your child feel more comfortable with our team. We will provide a gentle, stress-free introduction to our team so your kiddo can feel good about meeting their new friends.We will say hello, introduce ourselves, give you a tour of the office, and get to know you and your family. If it takes a little while for your child to warm up to us, don’t worry! We are patient and you can always come back to say hello another time.

Accomodation for Sensitivities

Whether it’s dimming the lights, providing calming white noise or music, putting on their favorite show, or letting them hold their favorite blanket throughout the visit, we are happy to make accommodations for your child’s sensitivities. Simply let us know your child’s preferences and we will be sure to tailor their experience so they feel relaxed and at-ease.

Sedation Options Available

We offer laughing gas sedation for in-house procedures and general anesthesia sedation for out-patient dental procedures. Sedation dentistry is a great option for extra wiggly patients or patients with dental anxiety. Sedation can help overcome a fear of going to the dentist or even a strong gag-reflex. If you think your child can benefit from sedation, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Conner to go over your options.
