Hospital Based Care

Hospital-Based Dental Care for Children and Special Needs Patients

Children with special needs, or those who are exceptionally fearful of the dentist, occasionally require deeper levels of sedation, provided in an outpatient hospital environment. Lahair & Gallagher Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics strives to provide a comfortable and relaxed dental experience with hospital-based care in Worcester. Children with special needs or those who require extensive treatment can receive their care at the UMass Memorial Medical Center at the Hahnemann Campus. 

Hospital-Based Dentistry in WorcesterWorcester Pediatric Services

Our pediatric dental staff works to give our young patients the best in care and comfort. Our children’s dental services help build trusting relationships between dentist and patient. In order to achieve optimized dental health, some children with advanced dental needs, or a patient with special needs require hospital-based dentistry which is the safest and most effective means for providing that specialized care.

Our pediatric dentists will assess the extent of necessary treatment for the individual child during their visit to our Worcester pediatric dental office. Children with special needs, dental phobias or complex dental treatment needs are good candidates for hospital-based treatments. 

Treating Dental Anxiety with Hospital Sedation

Dental phobias and anxiety can interfere with traditional in-office care, which makes hospital dentistry an excellent alternative. During our initial exam, we will assess chair-side cooperation and patient comfort – are they highly anxious, nervous or scared? Would nitrous oxide be effective enough to help them relax during treatment? The dentists at Lahair & Gallagher Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics will discuss treatment options with the parents to give the patients the quality, trusted dental care that they deserve.
