Our Approach to Special Needs Dentistry in Hackensack, NJ

Most of the time, our dentists get to know our special needs patients and can anticipate the techniques and environment that will make them feel comfortable. In other cases, our dentists set aside time to help patients with special needs adjust and adapt to the dental office setting.

Additionally, Dr. Vicente and Dr. Heaney are affiliated with Hackensack Meridian Health, including operating room privileges at Hackensack University Medical Center. This distinction means they accommodate patients who may do better in this type of setting—or patients who need the available backup plan of a hospital situation or in-patient treatment.

We also offer sedation dentistry to alleviate any fear or anxiety, and we may recommend sedation in certain situations.

When appropriate, we may also suggest nitrous oxide, a safe gas that bolsters feelings of relaxation and calm.
