ORANGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Western Dental Kids, part of Western Dental & Orthodontics, one of the nation’s leaders in accessible, affordable oral healthcare and the leading orthodontics provider in the country, today announced a comprehensive list of activities and events slated throughout the summer.
The events, centered around the theme “Journey to a Healthy Smile,” will take place at all 28 Western Dental Kids locations throughout California, as well as select Brident Dental offices in Texas. Activities will include face painting, balloon artists, magicians and appearances by “Pearly,” the company mascot.
“This summer is a great time for young patients and their parents to visit a Western Dental Kids office,” said Edwin Rivera, Vice President of Community Marketing. “School is out, so parents have more options to schedule a regular dental check up for their children, plus we have a fun schedule of activities waiting for them.”
Each Western Dental Kids office is equipped with state-of-the art digital equipment and provides comprehensive pediatric dental services, including sealants to help prevent cavities, fluoride treatments, and a full-service orthodontics department. Western Dental Kids accepts most forms of dental insurance, including Medi-Cal Dental.
“Our summer events are designed to create a fun, yet professional environment for children and their parents this summer,” said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer. “We want kids to have a positive experience at the dentist office.”
The first “Journey to a Healthy Smile” event is slated for June 16th at Western Dental Kids in Baldwin Park from 2 pm to 4 pm. For the complete schedule of office locations and event details, visit https://www.westerndental.com/en-us/about-us/activities.
