Meet Our Pediatric Dental Specialists

Our new offices were built with you and your child in mind.  Each aspect of our office is geared toward children. With soothing colors and surroundings, your child will be excited about their visits.

 

Our doctors and team have years of experience in making each visit relaxing and informative.  We know that your child is unique and we always strive to make each experience with us fun and memorable.

 

We are open Monday-Friday 8:00 to 5:00. Our office observes national holidays.

 

We are especially interested in making all our patients feel right at home!

We put your needs first to achieve efficient and comprehensive treatment.

 

Our staff is trained and skilled, and we strive to provide energetic and fun-loving service to each patient. Each member of our treatment team has dental assistant certification and years of experience in treating patients with the highest level of care.

 

We strive to stay up to date on the very latest  technology and advances by regularly attending continuing education courses and seminars.

Appointments

 

Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved specifically for you.

We request 24-hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment.

 

You are always welcome to accompany your child during your child’s entire visit to our office.

 

Insurance

 

Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 45 days to render payment. After 60 days, you are responsible for the entire balance, paid-in-full. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.

 

The doctors at California KiDDS are contracted as a preferred providers with the PPO dental insurance plans listed below.  We are not contracted with any DMO plans.

Financial Information

 

Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. Charges are payable at the time of treatment.

 

For those who do not have insurance, we offer a discount when payment is made in full at the time services are rendered.

 

We accept payments by cash, checks, and Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit cards. We also offer low- and no-interest financing options through the CareCredit system. Please ask a member of our staff, and we will review our payment options to accommodate your financial needs.

 

Additionally, we will submit all insurance claims for you. We will fully attempt to help you receive full insurance benefits; however, you are personally responsible for your account, and we encourage you to contact us if your policy has not paid within 30 days.

Your First Pediatric Dental Visit

 

When you arrive early for your first visit, you and your child will be greeted warmly. If you do have dental insurance, bring the information with you and our staff will file an electronic claim for you. We may need you to fill out forms that help you get acquainted with our office.

 

Your initial visit will provide a friendly, caring introduction to our dental home where lifelong relationships begin. The initial time spent with your child will include but not be limited to homecare instruction, nutrition counseling, growth & development evaluation, orthodontic evaluation as well as a comprehensive exam that will outline existing dental concerns.

 

You are welcome to accompany your child at all times during your visit to our office.

 

When Should I Take My Child to the Dentist for the First Time?

 

The American Academy of Pediatrics and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry both recommend that a child see a pediatric dentist within six months of the first tooth appearing, and no later than their first birthday. This should be the beginning of a positive relationship that will last through adolescence, between the dentist, the child and the parent. It also allows the dentist to monitor growth and development as the child grows, and catch any problems while they are still small and easy to treat. Our doctors gladly accept patients from infancy through adolescence.

Our Pediatric Dental Practice

Our doctors are pediatric dentists, specializing in the treatment and prevention of dental disease, as well as the overall oral health of children. Through extra years of schooling, training, experience, & certification, a pediatric dentist like our doctors are uniquely qualified to treat the dental needs of infants, children, and teens.

 

Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

 

A pediatric patient not only has a different dentition than adults but he/she may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These needs may include orthodontics, dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene. We also provide in office sedation along with hospital based general anesthesia.

 

In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education. We like to feel that you and your child do not come to our office to have their “cavities fixed” but rather to prevent them.

 

Our mission is to provide all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.
