Pediatric Dental Office in Whittier Joins the Western Dental Kids Family of Offices

Share:

Western Dental, one of the nation's largest dental providers and the
largest provider of dental services in California, announced today
another pediatric dental office will join the Western Dental Kids family.

Formerly Kid Smiles, the popular converted office is located in the
Whittwood Town Center at 15634 Whittwood Lane in Whittier, Calif.

The Whittier location was part of the Children's Dental Group offices
acquired by Western Dental late last year. All eight Children's Dental
offices will be converted to Western Dental Kids by year end, along with
another 14 Kids Dental Kare offices recently acquired. All Western
Dental Kids locations accept most forms of dental insurance, including
Medi-Cal Dental.

"Pediatric dentistry is a very important and rapidly growing area for
Western Dental," said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer. "With our
focus on Western Dental Kids throughout the state, we're expanding
access to care for thousands of California kids, including services like
fluoride treatments, dental sealants to help prevent cavities, and a
full-service orthodontics department."

The Whittier office transformation includes exterior signage, new
interior colors and a renovated office design with bright, fun graphics.

"Parents are particularly pleased with the new office décor," said Dr.
Corina Ramirez, Pediatric Director for Western Dental. "Children like
coming here, which makes a trip to the dentist easy for everyone."

An open house and ribbon cutting ceremony is planned.
