Dental Care & Kids With Autism

Teaching your child proper dental care and visiting the dentist office for the first time can be very stressful for any family. The Organizations Autism Speaks, Colgate, and Philips-Source have come together to create a dental guide for children with autism. The guide discusses starting dental care with your child, preparing for their first dental visit, and creating a visual schedule for your child. The website below includes a video of dental professionals speaking about how they collaborate with families as well as a PDF Dental guide.
