We Offer Special Needs Dentistry for Children and Adults

It is not only general anxiety and fear that often prevents individuals of all ages from visiting the dentist. There are numerous physical and psychological conditions that make receiving dental care highly uncomfortable and, as a result, many people do not receive appropriate care at all. This is where special needs dentistry comes in. When you need a highly skilled special needs dentist in Lansdale, PA, North Penn Dental Arts is only one call away.

As a board certified Dental Anesthesiologist, Dr. Heleniak makes dental care possible for special needs patients, allowing you to have most – if not all – of your dental work done in one visit. Our team has undergone specialized training and acquired extensive experience in order to treat people with various degrees of medical, behavioral and age-related conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Cerebral palsy

  • Autism

  • Down’s syndrome

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

  • Aversion to local anesthetic

  • Hyperactive gag reflex

  • Alzheimer’s and other dementias

We are proud to offer a full scope of sedation and anesthesia options for children and adults with special needs, including the elderly and individuals with severe dental phobia. We understand that caring for a patient with special needs can be difficult, yet all it takes is a gentle hand, a kind word and an overall compassionate in-office atmosphere.

Our team continually strives to meet your needs more than halfway and work with your limitations for a positive dental experience every time. If you have special needs, we would be happy to discuss your options and guide you through the regular dental care that you need.
