At Blooming Smiles, our mission is to help each of our patients achieve a smile they're truly proud to show off. We're proud to offer both orthodontic treatment for all ages and pediatric dental treatment to children throughout the Northridge and Woodland Hills areas – and often, pediatric dental care is vital to helping a child develop a beautiful, lifelong smile.

In keeping with the American Dental Association, we ask parents to bring their children in for an initial dental appointment at age 1.

Contact us today with any questions you have about treatment, and don't hesitate to request an appointment online at our Woodland Hills or Northridge, CA office. We can't wait to hear from you, and we hope to see you back at our blog for more tips on oral health!
