Poster Abstract
The health of our children is a major concern to us as parents, to our society and to our governments. Special needs patients can be defined as children or adults with a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral or emotional condition that substantially limits one or more major life activity and who need dental or health services beyond what is generally required. Some of the more common conditions that require special care in dentistry include Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, epileptic or seizure disorders, vision and hearing impairments, cleft lip/palate and other craniofacial conditions, and learning and developmental disabilities. Preventive dentistry holds a special significance for the special needs child. If dental care is started early and followed conscientiously, every child can enjoy a healthy smile. Parental and physician lack of awareness and knowledge of special health care need may hinder an individual with special health care need from seeking preventive dental care. Preventive health care like regular brushing and flossing, pit and fissure sealants, topical fluoride application and regular visits to a pediatric dentist is especially important to a child with special health care needs. The purpose of this poster is to inform and educate the reader about different preventive and treatment modalities of a child with special health care needs.
