For children and adolescents that have special needs, the UCLA Children’s Dental Center and the Venice Pediatric Dental Clinic recognize that providing both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care to individuals with special health care needs (SHCN) is an integral part of the specialty of pediatric dentistry. And patients with SHCN who have a dental home are more likely to receive appropriate preventive and routine care.
