Special Needs Dentistry - South Austin Dentist

Special Needs Dentistry



Many dentists and their staff find it difficult to treat patients with special needs due to lack of cooperative behavior and/or cognitive ability.   Patients with Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, or other medical conditions, may have dental, behavioral, or restorative needs which may require additional attention and specialized care.  Our team is experienced in helping these patients with their dental treatment in a comfortable and caring environment.

Dr. Goehring is passionate about helping these patients and it’s his way of contributing to the community.  The majority require IV sedation which is available in the office by both Dr. Goehring and an anesthesiologist.  We have heard from many patients that they have searched for years for someone to offer comprehensive and thorough care to their loved ones.  They have found that without sedation a thorough cleaning and xrays cannot be accomplished much less other dental treatment.  We are very efficient at providing the best dental care possible while maintaining a conservative approach focusing on disease control.

Many caregivers and group homes don’t know where to start to get care for their loved ones and certainly don’t know about the many grants that are available to help.

It’s one of the best things we do at Goehring Dental!
