Special-Needs Dentistry

At Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics, we believe that every child has the right to quality dentistry. This is why our staff has extensive training when it comes to treating children with special needs, including autism.

We take the time to get to know your child, and through this relationship, we can provide the best services in the right setting to fit the specific needs of your differently-abled child.

Our Fort Worth, TX dental team loves children and are here to help your kids get the care they need in a setting that helps them feel at home.

We work with patients who have:

  • Autism
  • Down syndrome
  • Behavioral issues
  • High anxiety
  • Other specific needs

Quiet Hours for High Anxiety

Justin Mund, DDS and our team provide quiet hours in the morning to help children with special needs feel comfortable in our dental office. Our differently-abled Smile Ninjas can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, and we are better able to take our time when providing their dentistry.

At Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics, we don’t want our lively, late-day atmosphere to prevent your child from being happy in our dental office and getting needed dental care.

Weighted Blankets and Specific Accommodations

We offer weighted blankets to help special-needs children feel secure in our dental office. We also partner with parents to learn what works best for your child. In most cases, we can provide special accommodations to help your child get the best care. This may mean allowing a favorite blanket into the exam room, going through a specific routine, giving your child time to feel relaxed, counting teeth, singing a particular song, or using nitrous oxide.

Our team works hard to find solutions and make dentistry a positive experience for every child. And we have discovered that special-needs children enjoy our dental office, and bond easily with Dr. Mund and our entire team.

Judgment-Free Dentistry for Every Family

Most of us at Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics are parents ourselves, and we understand that all children are unique. Behavioral problems are not an issue for us. We will always do our best to work with you and your child, answer your questions, and give each little one a chance for great dentistry well into adulthood.

We have found that patience goes a long way toward gaining the trust of differently-abled children, and we will always take our time to establish a good relationship with your child.
