Western Dental Converts Pediatric Office in Lynwood to Western Dental Kids


Western Dental, one of the nation's largest dental providers, announced
today the conversion of a recently acquired Kids Dental Kare office to
Western Dental Kids.

The newly branded office is located at 10900 Long Beach Blvd. in Lynwood.

The Lynwood office was part of 14 Kids Dental Kare locations purchased
by Western Dental last year. Conversions of all Kids Dental Kare offices
to the Western Dental Kids brand, along with eight Children's Dental
Group offices acquired last August, will be completed by year end.

"Pediatric dentistry is the fastest growing segment of our business,"
said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer. "Converting to Western
Dental Kids will allow all our pediatric dental offices to operate under
one brand, with shared services and protocols dedicated to children."

The office has four treatment rooms, two x-ray rooms and comprehensive
pediatric dental services, including sealants to help prevent cavities,
fluoride treatments, and a full-service orthodontics department. The
office accepts most forms of dental insurance, including Medi-Cal Dental.

"We're excited to be part of Western Dental Kids," said Dr. Daniel
Martinez, Associate Doctor at the Lynwood office. "The only thing
changing is our name. The same team will continue to provide quality
pediatric dental care to all our patients, with the resources of Western
Dental behind us."

An open house and ribbon cutting ceremony is slated for later this month.
