To provide the best possible care for your child, he/she will receive a personalized preventive plan to optimize their oral health. We have created several unique programs for our infant, child, adolescent and young adult patients that include the following care:
- Customized oral hygiene instruction in a one-on-one environment with one of our professionally trained staff members. We ensure that your child's diet, habits, hygiene and home care are reviewed thoroughly at each appointment. As parents, we understand the important role each piece of your child's daily life plays in his/her oral health.
- Consultation with our in-house orthodontist to ensure your child's growth and development is properly managed.
- Consultation with pediatricians and specialty care physicians in the South Bay and beyond to ensure your child's medical conditions are taken seriously and his/her dental care is coordinated properly.
With over 30 years of experience, we will provide your child with the best possible care. As parents, we know you have concerns about procedures and materials used in modern dentistry and we are more than happy to provide you with the best information so you can make the right decision for your child.
All of our treatment and materials are supported by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association. The following is a list of the routine care we offer our young patients:
- Fillings (Industry best white fillings)
- Crowns (Industry best Zirconia crowns)
- Pulp therapy (root canal)
- Space maintenance appliances
- Habit appliances
If you have further questions about the treatment we can provide for your child or you would just like someone to talk with, we are always here to help.
With our specialized training and knowledge, you can feel confident with our doctors. We are well prepared to care for children with physical, developmental, mental, sensory, behavioral, cognitive or emotional impairment, or limiting conditions.
We pride ourselves on being a leader in the South Bay when managing complex medical needs for our young patients. We have close working relationships with many of the pediatricians in the South Bay. If your child requires specialized care beyond our office, our doctors have privileges at Torrance Memorial Medical Center, Providence Little Company of Mary Hospital and the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center so your child can still receive the care he/she deserves.
If you have any questions regarding the care we can offer your child, we are more than happy to speak with you. After all, it is our goal that your child receives the safest and best care possible.
Sometimes children are unable to cope with dental treatment and therefore require more advanced behavior management techniques. Oral conscious sedation, or deep sedation provided by an anesthesiologist are services we offer in our office to ensure safety and comfort during treatment.
Our doctors will discuss the benefits of in-office sedation so that you and your family can make the most informed decision about your child's care.
Our sedation techniques are supported by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Our doctors have extensive sedation and safety training, including basic life support (BLS) and pediatric advanced life support (PALS).
Very young, apprehensive or children with special needs often require treatment under general anesthesia in the hospital. Ensuring that the treatment is done safely and comfortably while protecting the child's developing psyche is most important to our doctors.
Our doctors will discuss with you the benefits of treating your child in the hospital under general anesthesia.
The primary and permanent dentition is extremely important for growth and development. Facial trauma that results in fractured, displaced or lost teeth can have significant negative functional, esthetic and psychological effects on children.
The greatest incidence of dental trauma to the primary teeth occurs around 2 to 3 years of age when motor coordination is developing. As children get older, injuries to the permanent dentition occur from falls, violence and sports. Because dental trauma is time sensitive, it is important the child is evaluated as soon as possible to reduce the risk of tooth loss and other negative outcomes.
Our doctors have extensive experience with dental trauma, and our office is equipped to handle simple and complex traumatic injuries. If the child has needs beyond our office, we have a close working relationship with Torrance Memorial Medical Center and Little Company of Mary Hospital.
Our emergency services are available 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. If the emergency occurs outside normal business hours, we ask that you call our emergency phone number to speak with the doctor. Our emergency phone number is 310-792-6262. Directions to our office are located on our contact page.
