Special Needs

Professional & Compassionate Pediatric Dentistry in Watertown, NY

Dr. Andrew Beuttenmuller and his team at Watertown Pediatric Dentistry in Watertown, NY tailors their approach to patients with special needs. Oftentimes, special health care needs (SHCN) patients require a slower approach. Our highly trained staff provides premium dental care at Watertown Pediatric Dentistry.

We also offer sedation dentistry to accommodate patients who suffer from dental fear and anxiety. We understand that going to the dentist can be scary for some children, so we offer conscious sedation and nitrous oxide options.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide is administered through a flavored nosepiece to help eliminate any nervousness and anxiety. Your child remains conscious and responsive throughout the procedure.

Conscious Sedation

This option includes administering a dose of Versed, which allows the child to relax and not remember what occurs during the procedure. Although they’re sedated, your child might cry or move during treatment.

General Anesthesia

If your child requires a deeper level of sedation beyond conscious sedation, it will be administered by an anesthesiologist at Samaritan Medical Center. Dental work will be performed by Dr. Andrew in an operating room at the Samaritan Medical Center.
