Special Needs Dentistry

Every year children are born with physical, medical, and emotional challenges.  Dr. Groh takes special pride in having dedicated approximately ten percent of his professional time to helping people with special needs.  For these children requiring greater attention, a kind touch and subtle approach are often sufficient to calm a fearful patient; however, patients with special needs do not always have the innate ability to cooperate.  Dr. Groh’s anesthesia background and hospital affiliations serve Dental Leaders well in assisting these individuals.  The practice treats patients with Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, craniofacial syndromes, mental retardation, Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, cardiac problems, and a variety of other conditions.
