Dental Insurance Kids – Dental Care for Kids with ADD.

Monday, Apr. 29th 2024 12:21 PM

I have a seven-year-old who has ADD, and taking him to the dentist is a pain. He can not seem to sit still for more than 15 minutes. It is like he starts getting ants in his pants. I want to change the current dentist we see, not because he is not good but because he doesn’t have the needed patience for my son. Where should I go for good dental care for my son’s needs?

Reply: Finding a good dentist who is patient and understanding of your son’s needs is essential. Consider looking for a pediatric dentist who specializes in treating children with ADD. They may have experience and training in dealing with difficult sitting-still children. You can ask for recommendations from friends, family, or healthcare providers. You can also check with your dental insurance provider to see if they have a list of pediatric dentists who are covered under your plan. Don’t hesitate to ask questions and share your concerns with your dentist. Good communication can go a long way in ensuring your son receives the dental care he needs.

Here are a few tips when looking for a new dentist for your son. When calling a dental office for a special needs child, here are some questions you could ask to ensure your child receives the best care possible:

1. Do you have experience treating children with special needs such as ADD, autism, or sensory processing disorders?

2. Are your staff members trained to work with children with difficulty sitting still or communicating their needs?

3. What accommodations do you have for children with special needs?

4. Can we schedule a consultation appointment to meet the dentist and staff and discuss our child’s needs before scheduling dental work?

5. Are you familiar with dental insurance plans that may cover specific treatments for children with special needs?

Remember that it’s important to find a dental office that is patient, understanding, and accommodating of your child’s unique needs. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or share any concerns.
