Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to improve the oral health of children in Orange County through collaborative programs directed at prevention, outreach and education, access to treatment, and advocacy.
Healthy Smiles is a leading provider of sedation services, treating children at the Garden Grove Smile Center and at CHOC Children’s Hospital. Sedation is often necessary for children with special needs, children that require significant restorative work, and children with increased anxiety. Sedation can help increase cooperation and prevent injury by helping children remain still around
Our Smiles X-Press program is the biggest countywide teledentistry pilot in the nation. Using state-of- the-art technology, a specially trained dental hygienist and dental assistant screen children, take x-rays, and provide preventative services in a classroom setting. A dentist reviews the data offsite and creates a treatment plan. This goes a long way in combatting traditional barriers to care—such as transportation and parent work schedules.
The Smile Mobiles are two-chair dental facilities “on wheels”. They’ve allowed Healthy Smiles to greatly expand pediatric dental services directly into underserved neighborhoods throughout Orange County. The Smile Mobiles visit approximately 110 public schools and over 500 community sites throughout Orange County.
Best Pediatric Dentist experience! The Tooth Fairy Learning Center is amazing! Fun and educational. My daughter loves it! I highly recommend this office. They are wonderful! Very fun, low stress office environment and awesome staff!
So thankful I found this place.. They emphasize oral health through prevention and education. My 2yr old hated brushing his teeth until the dentist showed me her technique. Now he’s much more cooperative. Plus their tooth fairy reward system encourages kids to brush/floss. Highly recommend.
Love the staff and specially Dr. Shah, he was great made my son feel very confortable throught out the whole treatment did not even get bothered by me being in the room he even explained step by step the treatment as he was doing it
