Special Needs Dentistry

From birth, special needs can impact your child’s dental health and put them at risk for oral disease. It’s crucial to find a Decatur, Illinois dentist who specializes in understanding your child's specific oral and dental needs to help them maintain optimal oral health.

Dr. Bret Jerger is a pediatric dentist who has had specific training to care for children with special needs and handle unique issues such as dental anxiety related to their visits. Our preventive approach includes making recommendations to help you meet your child’s specific dental needs.

For example, preventing cavities and gum disease is critical for all children, so Dr. Jerger may recommend products such as fluoride rinses, floss holders, and adaptive aids for toothbrushes that make it easier to keep your child's teeth clean and healthy.
