Sensory Inclusive Dentistry – Birmingham, AL
Get the Comfortable Care Your Child Needs
When caring for a child who has special needs or sensory issues, like Autism, it can be difficult getting them the dental care. You need a dentist who has experience handling the unique medical, physical, psychological, or social circumstances that require more than a regular approach. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of dentists can treat patients who have developmental or special needs. Dr. Angelica Rohner and her team understand your situation. She is KultureCity Certified to provide sensory inclusive dentistry. You will find a better environment that offers more accessible care for all patients.
Compassionate Care You Can Trust
Dr. Rohner is a board-certified pediatric dentist and a Diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. In addition to earning her dental degree, she furthered her training by two years to specialize in pediatric services, including orthodontics. As a mother, she relates to every child and parent who visits her practice.
Dr. Rohner and her team believe all patients deserve to have access to comfortable dental care tailored to their individual needs. We strive to build relationships with our patients that are built on trust and sensitivity. From the moment you walk into the office, you enter a calm, warm, and welcoming environment.
Our team has experience with patients who have physical or developmental circumstances who need increased attention and awareness during their dental procedures, such as limiting sudden movements and minimizing stimulation. We take the time to work at the patient’s pace and comfort level to provide a stress-free visit—no matter the complexity of their needs.
We understand the unique qualities of each smile we treat to ensure maximum oral health for all, regardless of their disabilities. With comprehensive preventive and therapeutic dental services, we help each patient achieve their healthiest smile possible.
KultureCity Inclusive Certified
To provide her patients with the highest level of care, Dr. Rohner is KultureCity Inclusive Certified.

Through her training, she can spot the signs of sensory, behavioral, and language signals that indicate their comfort to adjust her approach and treatments accordingly. She can identify potential barriers to create a strategy to support their oral health needs. We offer the following resources and accommodations to our patients.

If your child needs a little extra help feeling at ease during their visit, Dr. Rohner provides sedation dentistry. She offers both nitrous oxide and general anesthesia to allow patients to sleep through their dental appointment. This makes routine visits, preventive treatments, and restorative procedures easier and stress-free for patients who have special needs. We monitor your child closely throughout the entire process to ensure their safety.
