Check out the top five reasons you should visit us today:
1. We’re local!
Five Cities Pediatric Dental Group & Orthodontics is conveniently located directly beside northbound Route 101 in Pismo Beach, about one mile from Judkins Middle School. So no matter where you live in the Five Cities area — Pismo Beach, Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, Nipomo, or Oceano — we’re just a short drive away.
Our convenient location next to the 101 freeway makes our office easily accessible for our patients who live in San Luis Obispo or Santa Maria. Plenty of free parking is available! We are proud to be a locally owned, family-run business with lifelong ties to the central coast.
2. Convenience for your family's busy lives
In planning our office, we also considered the busy parent-child schedule. We offer both orthodontics and pediatric dentistry, all in one convenient location. No need to drive back and forth between the orthodontist and dentist offices; we can provide both specialty services in one convenient location. Additionally, our orthodontist is also a pediatric dentist, which gives her a unique perspective on management of the developing smile. Both of our dentists devote 100% of their weekly hours to our Pismo Beach location... they do not provide care at other practices or locations, leaving more appointment times available for our patients!
3. Pediatric Dentistry is a specialized field
Our pediatric dentists are board-certified specialists that completed their residency training at the UCLA School of Dentistry. Children’s dentistry is more than just caring for little teeth. The total child needs to be considered: not only with regards to dental health, but also from a psychological and developmental standpoint.
Our pediatric dentists are uniquely qualified to provide this care, having completed a 27-month advanced training program after dental school that focused exclusively upon the dental management of children. We also have training in caring for children and adolescents with special health-care needs. In short, pediatric dentistry is our niche! We would love to help your child start life with great oral health.
4. Children (and technology) are our passion!
Our mission is to treat patients as if they were our own children and to provide safe, comfortable and compassionate care for the infants, children and teenagers of our community. We won't rush through a procedure like other local high-volume practices might. We utilize modern technology and therapies but won't compromise care with treatment modalities & gimmicks that don't withstand the test of time. Providing the best quality orthodontic and pediatric dentistry services is our highest priority. We know that visiting the dentist can be a scary experience, and we strive to create a friendly, soothing environment. Office design such as an open floor plan, eye-catching themed murals, and overhead TV monitors ensure that your child will feel at ease. At Five Cities Pediatric Dental Group & Orthodontics, kids have fun, and you can relax knowing your child is in the care of experienced professionals.
5. Yes, we accept insurance!
We never want the cost of dentistry for children or orthodontic services to stand in the way of optimal oral health for your family. To that end, we are providers for many dental insurance companies and make the claims process as simple as possible for parents. Check your insurance provider directory for our dentists’ names, and please give us a call for financial information if your insurance doesn’t list us!
For our patients without dental insurance, we are often able to extend significant fee discounts. Please call our office for more details. You may be surprised to know that taking your child to a specialist in pediatric dentistry doesn’t necessarily mean a higher price tag compared to a general dentist.
So what are you waiting for? Make an appointment at our Pismo Beach office today! We’re excited to meet you and your children and help them start a lifetime of good oral health.
