Dental Care for Children with Special Health Care Needs | Your Visit

We do our best to make each dental visit as convenient and comfortable as possible for children and caregivers. Whatever other hospital visits your child may have, we’re happy to work with you to coordinate that care by scheduling your appointment beforehand or afterwards. 

Planning ahead and being prepared helps ease the way and decrease your wait. A good way to do this is by filling out paperwork beforehand and bringing  it with you to your appointment along with your insurance information. If a dentist outside of Boston Children’s Hospital is referring you, it's also helpful to bring a letter of what the dentist’s concerns are, along with any x-rays that may have been taken.

Based on feedback we have received from patients, we have included some helpful information and tips on requesting an appointment, what to bring with you, where we see patients and ways to prepare your child for treatment.
