Dr. Sjostrom has specialized training in caring for individuals with special needs and is committed to providing the best dental care for all children. Our friendly staff is specifically trained to diagnose and treat special needs patients, regardless of their physical, mental, developmental or other special health care needs.
We assist our special needs patients as well as their caregivers in learning individualized preventative oral health practices. By establishing Sandia Pediatric Dentistry as their dental home, our special needs patients significantly reduce their risk of preventable dental disease.
It is important that people who are in daily contact with our special needs patients become engaged in the dental care of the patient. If the special needs patient is not capable of self-care, it is important that caregivers are active in the prevention of dental disease and other aspects of the individual’s oral health care. Proper tooth brushing and flossing techniques are emphasized with all patients.
Our caring and experienced staff at Sandia Pediatric Dentistry will provide your child with the gentleness and attention that he/she requires for a successful and positive dental visit. To make an appointment for your child, call us at (505) 200-3516.
