Dr. McKeever understands that each child is unique, with individualized responses to new experiences, so she will adapt her approach to your child’s unique tolerance level. After working with many special needs patients, we have found that taking small steps toward complete dental care is a wonderful way to introduce these children to the dentistry experience. Through repetitive tasks and small steps, we can help your child develop a sense of trust with Dr. McKeever and her team. Our goal is to have our office become a friendly, familiar place for your child after several short visits.
