Special Care Dentistry

Weideman Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics is committed to providing the best dental care for all children regardless of their developmental or other special health care needs. With almost 45 years of experience helping families who are faced with daily challenges, we have developed ways to be more efficient and decrease the stress of dental health at home and at the dental office. Comprehensive oral health care and Orthodontics are both available in a gentle understanding environment for everyone.

By establishing our office as their dental home, special care patients learn individualized preventive oral health practices that significantly reduce their risk of preventable dental disease. Starting with our get-to-know-you questionnaire, downloadable pictorial Social Story and pre-appointment visits, we ease patients into our environment where they have the ability to meet our staff and doctors, practice sitting in the chair, or being introduced to different dental instruments. Our social storybook will also help visually prepare for the dental visit and can be requested at any time.


Our dental hygienists have over 20 years of experience with special care individuals, they know that each person has unique needs and strive to discover those needs while ensuring that dentistry is a rewarding experience. You can be assured our office will give your special needs child the attention and gentleness he/she requires for a positive and successful dental experience.

The Weideman team’s greatest reward has been creating lifetime friendships with families and caretakers of children and adults who are in need of special care dentistry. We understand that caring for these individuals requires compassion and empathy and are dedicated to meeting their needs. Families have trusted and depended on us for many years to guide their loved ones through the pathways of good oral health.
