Providence Expands Pediatric Dental Clinic
Now serving patients from age 1 to 25 years old

Open since March 2011, Providence Specialty Pediatric Dental Clinic has provided comprehensive dental services for hundreds of children with special needs and their siblings. During this time of exceptional growth, our clinic has discovered an unmet community need for dental services for older children and young adults with special needs. 

Our clinic is located within the Providence Child Center in Northeast Portland. We provide dental care for children with a wide range of diagnoses and needs, including anxiety, sensory issues, autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and developmental and speech/language delays. We welcome medically complex children, as well as children who suffer from fear of going to the doctor or dentist. Our goal is to provide a positive dental experience for any child who may not tolerate a traditional clinic environment.

We accept most dental insurance plans, Medicaid/OHP and offer a sliding fee scale for private pay families. In addition, we work with The Humanitarian Foundation which provides free dental insurance or free secondary insurance for children who meet certain diagnostic criteria. For details, referral forms or more information about the clinic, please call us at 503-215-1056.
