Our Featured Providers
Dr. Patricia Nolan
I went to UCLA for undergrad where I obtained a Bachelors of Science in Psychobiology. For Dental School I attended University of the Pacific in San Francisco where I received my DDS degree. I then went on to complete a General Practice Residency at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center where I received extra training working with patients with special needs and mental and physical disabilities.
I was born and raised here in Mid city LA. My husband also an LA native is a retired NFL player so we live a very active lifestyle spending our time at the beach during the warmer months, taking our dog hiking and heading to the mountain for snowboarding during the cold season. We also enjoy watching our favorite teams play in our spare time. We bleed blue for the Dodgers. It's Rams house all day but unfortunately the house is divided when it comes to the Lakers and Golden State Warriors. I recently became a mom of an energetic baby boy and so these days are mostly filled with quality time with the family creating memories for our little guy.
Dr. Kevin Kang
I went to Occidental College and received my Bachelor of Arts in Biology. From there, I went to UCLA and received my DDS. I then received my MS and certification in Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics at the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health.
I grew up in east Los Angeles and have always been a huge basketball and Lakers fan. I am currently living in west Los Angeles with my wife and my dog, Bambi. Other than spending time with my wife and my dog I love to spend time with my family and friends, watch and play most sports, go climbing, watch movies and TV shows, and find new restaurants to try.
Kids Dental dentist and staff are very professional, attentive to a child's needs, very reassuring, kind and compassionate. This the third time I have had my grand daughter who is 4 1/2 years old and afraid of doctors go through no less than 4 cavity repairs with crowns and 1 root canal without a peep out of her! Incredible! They are great!

We provide professional dental cleanings! During dental cleanings, we use special tools to remove plaque from hard-to-reach spots. We also check for early signs of tooth decay so that we can treat any issues that arise before they become a more serious problem. For children who are more susceptible to tooth decay, fluoride treatments and sealants are necessary to protect and maintain the strength of their teeth.
Dental X-rays allow dentists to monitor oral development and check for any potential diseases or decay that can impact your child’s dental health. Dental x-rays are special because they reveal areas of the teeth that are invisible during dental cleanings.
Fluoride gives your teeth the protection they need to stay healthy! Fluoride is a natural mineral that protects teeth from decay and maintains tooth strength. During regular dental visits, we paint a concentrated fluoride varnish directly onto tooth/teeth surfaces that need protection. Fluoride is beneficial throughout a child’s life, and it is an important part of healthy dental hygiene.
The most basic form of tooth decay is cavities, especially for toddlers and children. A cavity develops plaque builds up and eats at the tooth enamel. This creates a hole in the tooth called a cavity. Sometimes cavities are hard to prevent, but proper dental hygiene, a healthy diet, and biannual dental cleanings are the best defense. When a cavity is found, the dentist removes the decay and fills in the hole.
Dental sealants protect teeth against harmful bacteria and tooth decay. Even with excellent oral hygiene, the grooves on the surfaces of molars are vulnerable to collections of food and bacteria that can potentially lead to decay. Dental sealants give teeth an extra layer of protection, and they are an important part of preventative oral care.
Dental crowns are placed on top of damaged teeth that need to be restored to their correct size and shape. Sometimes a filling is not enough to restore a tooth that is decayed or compromised. In this circumstance, dental crowns are necessary. A dental crown is applied in one appointment using some form of anesthetic.
There are times when a tooth needs to be extracted. These cases include when a tooth is extensively damaged or decayed when a baby tooth needs help coming out, and when additional room is needed in the mouth in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
In every dental procedure and at every visit, we want to minimize potential distress to keep kids calm and comfortable.Dental sedation helps relax kids. Select locations provide dental sedation options, and a referral is required.
Teeth can accidentally chip or break during play. Thankfully, we have ways to fix chips and breaks! Contact your dentist immediately if your child has a broken tooth. During the emergency visit, the dentist will examine the child’s mouth. Sometimes, the tooth fragment can be reattached. If you are able to locate the chipped tooth fragment, put it in a bag with water or saline and bring it to the dentist's office. If the tooth fragment can’t be found, there are additional ways to repair the tooth.
Good news families! Medi-Cal and most dental insurance plans cover two dental cleanings and checkups per year. Regular dental checkups are important for maintaining oral health. Book an appointment with us for your child today!
