Special Needs Dentistry
Dr. Mike Glasmeier is a father of special needs children who provides special needs dentistry at his Antioch, TN, practice. He understands that patients with autism, cerebral palsy, Alzheimer’s, and other conditions require individualized accommodations, and he has the training and experience to make your loved one feel comfortble in our office. Dr. Glasmeier's compassionate and comprehensive care can help your loved one achieve and maintain the healthy, beautiful smile he or she deserves.
More than a Decade of Compassionate Care
Dr. Glasmeier has been practicing since 2004, and has had the privilege of treating hundreds of special needs children and adults over the years. He is not merely a dentist who sees special needs patients; rather, he has completed focused training in special needs dentistry, and as a dedicated father of two boys with autism, he truly understands the importance of care attuned to special needs.
We are always willing to communicate with the therapists, parents, and caretakers of special needs patients in order to be certain that the patient receives the right accommodations and treatment.
He also understands that patients with special needs can be overwhelmed by a standard dental office, often leading to fear, anxiety, and other discomfort. Dr. Glasmeier has taken every measure to create a calm and relaxing environment in his office, and when necessary, he can provide sedation and other accommodations.

Dr. Glasmeier is proud to offer:
- Routine dental exams and x-rays

Dr. Glasmeier also provides cosmetic dentistry procedures to help patients' smiles look bright and symmetrical.
Tailoring Treatment to Your Loved One's Needs
We understand that no two patients have the same needs. Techniques that benefit one patient will not necessarily benefit another due to health and other factors. Dr. Glasmeier is passionate about making absolutely certain that the approach he takes with each patient is chosen based on the patient's health, abilities, and personal preferences. Under Dr. Glasmeier's care, you can expect that your loved one will be treated with the utmost respect using techniques designed to accommodate his or her needs and result in the best possible oral health benefits.
When scheduling your appointment with us, we will provide you with a questionnaire about your loved one. Your answers will allow us to provide completely personalized care. Meanwhile, we are always willing to communicate with the therapists, parents, and caretakers of special needs patients in order to be certain that the patient receives the right accommodations and treatment.
