Reader Favorites: Top Dentists Referred By East Bay Parents

Thank you to our sponsor, Alameda Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics. The results of our survey were not influenced by sponsors; however, winners were invited to become sponsors.

My children enjoy visiting our family’s dentist. She cares for their teeth, of course, and gives them special attention. She remembers little details between visits and encourages their budding independence by reminding them to floss in a way that is sooo much less annoying than when I do it. We were happy to hear about all your favorite dentists when we asked the question.
