The Louisiana Department of Healthcare describes children with special needs as those who have or are at increased risk for chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional conditions.
They are more susceptible to oral health problems, such as tooth decay, gum disease, enamel hypoplasia, and tooth anomalies.
Managing the oral health of children with special healthcare needs is important, but it can pose challenges for parents. However, with the right support from a pediatric dentist specifically trained in handling special needs patients, maintaining their oral health is possible.
At Lafayette Pediatric Dentistry, we understand the unique challenges and considerations when it comes to providing dental care for children with special needs.
Dr. Anita Gouri has years of experience delivering superior dental care services to children with a wide range of mental and physical challenges, ensuring that their specific requirements are met with the utmost care and attention.
Dr. Gouri and the team strive to make every child feel as comfortable as possible with the aim of creating a positive dental experience throughout their visit, regardless of their individual needs.
As an option, we also provide sedation dentistry to patients who need a little help relaxing during the appointment.

What Parents are Saying
“This place is AMAZING!!! All these wonderful reviews are completely accurate!!! They were so sweet to my child with a 22q Deletion and I wouldn't go anywhere else! They didn't pressure her into anything and let me make decisions on her care. They were very helpful in explaining upcoming procedures and they made us all so comfortable. I live in Lake Charles and I would make the trip 1,000 times because their care was so amazing. Thank you so much for accepting us as a new patient!!!”
