LOS BANOS, Calif., November 11, 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 the opening of a new Western Dental & Orthodontics office in Los Banos, CA.

The new office is located at 1153 West Pacheco Blvd., just east of Interstate 5. With the addition of the new office, Western Dental now operates 233 offices in California.

“Our new Los Banos office expands access to dental care for patients in the San Joaquin Valley,” said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer for Western Dental. “Before we opened here, many residents had to drive to Merced or Turlock to see a dentist.”

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 its patients.

“We’re grateful to be part of this growing community in a beautiful, new retail center,” said Dr. Vidhi Shah, Associate Doctor at the Los Banos office. “Our brand new office is state-of-the-art, and our staff is eager to welcome friends and neighbors from the community.”

Western Dental welcomes patients covered by the Medi-Cal Dental program (known as Denti-Cal) at this location and all of its California offices, 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 is committed to continuing to partner with the State to help improve the program. 

The office is open on Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. An open house and ribbon cutting ceremony are planned.
