ORANGE, Calif., October 15, 2019 – 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 schedule of fall-themed events slated throughout October and early November.

The events, centered around the theme “Summon a Healthy Spirit,” will take place at all 29 Western Dental Kids locations throughout California, as well as more than 20 Brident and South Texas Dental offices in Texas. Educational materials on oral health will be available. Activities will include face painting, balloon artists, a live DJ and appearances by “Pearly,” the company mascot. The public is welcome, and there is no charge for any of the events.

“This Fall 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. “The events we planned will feature fun activities. Parents can schedule a regular checkup for their children while they’re here, before they get too busy with the holidays.”

Every 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. In addition to accepting uninsured and privately insured patients, Western Dental Kids welcomes patients covered by the Medi-Cal Dental program (known as Denti-Cal) in addition to all of Western Dental offices in California.

“Our Fall events will provide a fun and unique environment for our patients,” said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer. “We want kids and families to have a positive experience at the dentist office.”
