Pediatric Dentists Dr. Gayatri Moghe and Dr. Kevin Verghese Sam have guided us to create a manual on dental hygiene care for children with special needs. This helps caregivers understand the common dental concerns that are prevalent among children with special needs. Due to pre-existing challenges, children with special needs require to take extra care for good oral health. It is therefore important to manage dental care to avoid tooth decay. The presentation above briefly describes how your child’s Dentist would introduce a treatment plan and guide you to ensure good oral care for your child’s well-being.
