At Jerger Pediatric Dentistry, we work extra hard to provide exceptional dentistry to children, regardless of their mental and physical capabilities. We recognize that some children may have special needs that stem from developmental delays, sensory issues, autism, physical requirements, or behavioral impairments.

Dr. Bret Jerger has extensive training in special needs children's dentistry. He has a dedicated dental staff who make sure that every patient has a gentle and pleasant experience at our Decatur, IL dental office. 

Special Needs Dentistry in Mt. Zion, IL

During your child's dental check-up at our 62526 dentist office, we start with a thorough examination of their teeth and gums to determine individual oral health needs. We encourage parents to hold their child's hand or comfort them during the exam if they wish to do so. You can feel confident that your child is in gentle and capable hands with Dr. Jerger.

His extensive training in special needs pediatric dentistry provides him with experience to create a calm and comfortable environment. 

Children's Sedation Dentistry in Decatur, IL

Not all patients require sedation during a dental cleaning and exam, but if it is needed, we offer hospital sedation to keep your child relaxed and movement free. This allows your children's dentist to work on teeth or perform an examination without causing anxiety to your child. Treatments can be scary, but they are less so with hospital sedation where your child can rest peacefully throughout the procedure. 

Children with special needs may be unable to control their body movements and can benefit from hospital sedation. 

If you are interested in learning more about sedation or would like to learn more about dental exams and treatments, please do not hesitate to contact our Decatur, IL dental office at  (217) 875-3080.
