Special Needs Dentistry

Children and adults with special health care needs must visit the dentist just like anyone. At Gallery Park Dental, we know that working with these patients requires additional knowledge and understanding. Both Dr. Rogers and Dr. Gripentrog have worked extensively with people with special needs and medically compromised patients at our dentist practice in Glenview, IL.

If you or a family member has special health care needs, you can feel confident that our team will provide exceptional care in a comfortable environment.

Working with Patients Who Have Special Needs 

Special needs come in many forms, and we are experts at providing whatever approach is needed in order to meet our patients’ requirements.

Developmental Disabilities

Children with developmental disabilities are often at risk for developing oral health problems. After evaluating your child’s specific needs, we will create a treatment plan that works with their unique issues. We will also work with you to ensure you have the information you need to help your child maintain good oral health.


Patients who are suffering from cancer and undergoing chemotherapy often find that treatments can have a big impact on their oral health. We recommend that patients come to see us before undergoing treatment, if possible. We can talk about strategies to coordinate dental care with other health care professionals to ensure that oral health is not unduly compromised.

Patients who have diabetes may find that they are at higher risk for dental complications because of slower healing times. In addition, diabetic patients with gum disease can experience additional problems regulating blood glucose levels, which can impact the progression of diabetes.

Regardless of the medical condition that requires special attention, we provide compassionate care appropriately suited for every patient. Call us ahead of time to go over any specifics so we can make accommodations for your appointment.

Providing Extraordinary Care for All

We look forward to serving all our patients, and we have designed our office with special needs in mind. We want all patients to feel comfortable here.
