ORANGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Western Dental & Orthodontics, one of the nation’s leaders in accessible, affordable oral health care and the leading orthodontics provider in the country, today announced the opening of its newest office in Lincoln Heights, a suburb of northeast Los Angeles.
Located in a new office and retail building at 3303 N. Broadway, the site is across the street from Gates Street Elementary and adjacent to Abraham Lincoln High School, just east of Interstate 5.
“We are proud to expand access to even more residents throughout the greater Los Angeles area with this new office,” said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer for Western Dental. “We will provide a full complement of dental services all under one roof, as we do in all 233 offices throughout California.”
The Lincoln Heights office is comprised of 12 treatment rooms, including four dedicated to root canal treatments and pediatric dentistry. The office provides comprehensive dental services, including general dentistry, orthodontics, oral surgery, dental implants, pediatric dentistry and oral hygiene services, creating a “dental home” for patients.
“It is fitting that our newest office is in the oldest neighborhood in Los Angeles, where our organization’s roots in the community date back 118 years,” said Dr. Elahe Haghighi Zolmajd, Managing Dentist of the Lincoln Heights office. “We welcome patients and their families to our new office, where it is our goal to provide safe, high-quality, affordable oral health care in a comfortable setting with the latest technology.”
Western Dental has installed new equipment and implemented enhanced safety protocols in all of its offices, consistent with public health and dental association guidelines, to help prevent Covid-19 transmission. “Our safety measures are designed to protect patients and dental teams alike,” said Dr. Luther.
Western Dental welcomes patients covered by the Medi-Cal Dental program (known as Denti-Cal) at this and all of its California locations, in addition to accepting uninsured and privately insured patients. Western Dental is the leading provider of services to the Denti-Cal program, which provides health care benefits for more than 13 million low-income individuals and families in California. Western Dental continues to partner with the State to help improve the program.
The office is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The office is closed Wednesdays. A virtual open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony are planned.
