August 10, 2018

ORANGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 10, 2018--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.
