Welcome

We would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family! Our office is committed to providing excellent preventative care for children in a warm, positive, and compassionate environment.

We specialize in comprehensive pediatric dental care for children of all ages with an emphasis on prevention. Baby teeth play a critical role in a child's long-term dental health and we truly believe the cornerstone for a lifetime of good oral health is laid in childhood.

Choose a Pediatric Dentist

In the same way that a pediatrician is a specialized MD, a Pediatric Dentist is a DDS who has received additional training treating children. After completing the traditional four years of dental school, Pediatric Dentists also complete a 2-year residency program specializing in pediatrics. Family dentists and "kid friendly" offices have not achieved this distinction.

Dr. Gila, Dr. Megan, and Dr. Evan have all earned the title of Diplomate of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and are board-certified pediatric specialists. Our award-winning offices are designed to be playful, friendly, and warm to help children feel more comfortable. All contributing to a positive experience at each visit.

 

JUMPSTART Toddler Program

Our JUMPSTART program is a complimentary exam for toddlers less than 24 months old. In response to the increasing incidence of dental decay in younger children, our JUMPSTART program is designed to create a welcoming, supportive initial experience for children at an early age.

Both the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend that children visit a dentist by age one. Our JUMPSTART program encourages new parents to follow through on this recommendation by providing a dental exam and consultation with one of our Pediatric Dentists for children under the age of 24 months at no cost. We will identify early signs of dental decay, provide tips for oral care, and address toddler habits.

There is no fee and no obligation to continue as a patient in our practice.

Aspen - Our certified therapy dog

 

Aspen is our team mascot and a certified therapy dog. She is trained, licensed, and insured and visits our offices on a regular basis to help any of our young patients, or their parents, who might be feeling a little anxious about their visit. An English cream golden retriever, Aspen completed her therapy dog training and certification at 4PAWS Inc. in Rohnert Park, CA.

Aspen thrives on attention and loves chasing balls, getting her belly rubbed and - believe it or not - brushing her teeth.

If you would like Aspen to be available during your child's visit, please let us know in advance and we will try to accommodate your request. She is usually working in the office on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, but can also come other days at special request
