Who Are Special Needs Patients?
Children or adults who have a physical, emotional, developmental, cognitive, sensory, or mental impairment are defined as special needs. In the context of a dental appointment, special needs patients may be especially anxious or sensitive and require a gentle, slower approach. It’s often best to provide sedation or anesthesia for these patients and schedule their appointments when the practice isn’t busy.
