The office, located at 1705 Prescott Road, accepts all forms of
insurance, including Medi-Cal Dental. Western Dental also has three
traditional offices in Modesto.

The newly redesigned office has been transformed from an existing
Western Dental office into a colorful, kid-friendly space for children
and their parents. The Modesto office will serve as a prototype for
Western Dental Kids offices scheduled to open throughout the remainder
of the year, including 22 recently acquired pediatric dental offices
which will assume the Western Dental Kids name.

"Children have special dental needs, and our Western Dental Kids offices
will provide them with quality dental care in a safe, fun and
professional environment," said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer.
"Parents can feel assured their children will receive the highest level
of pediatric dental care at Western Dental Kids."

Modesto-Prescott and all Western Dental Kids offices are staffed with
doctors specializing in pediatric dentistry, Board-eligible
orthodontists and a team of professionals experienced in working with
children. Pediatric dental services include sealants to help prevent
cavities, fluoride treatments and a full-service orthodontics department.

"Our team at Modesto-Prescott and at all our pediatric dental offices
know how to care for children," said Dr. Corina Ramirez, Pediatric
Director for Western Dental. "We're dedicated to making every child's
visit fun and stress free."

A special two-day event that's open to the public is slated for Sept.
7-8, including a VIP reception and ribbon-cutting ceremony and an open
house with entertainment, toys and refreshments.
