Pasadena, Calif., October 29th, 2021 – Western Dental & Orthodontics, one of the nation’s leaders in accessible, affordable, high-quality oral health care, today announced the relocation of the Western Dental & Orthodontics office in Pasadena.

The office has been moved to a larger space in a thriving retail center at 1245 N. Lake Ave., about a mile from its previous location.

“The original Pasadena location was one of our first Western Dental offices, having opened nearly 100 years ago,” said Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer. “The new office is close by, allowing current patients to continue their dental care without any inconvenience.”

The new office includes 12 operatories and exam rooms, including four treatment rooms dedicated to pediatric dentistry and endodontics, and a panoramic X-ray room. Patients will continue to have access to a full range of services – including general dentistry, orthodontics, oral surgery, dental implants and oral hygiene services – in a true “dental home.”

“Our new office has been beautifully designed with state-of-the-art dental equipment and is more spacious than our previous location,” said Dr. Chris Altunis, Managing Dentist at the relocated Pasadena office. “My staff has ensured that the transition to our new office will be seamless for patients.”

Western Dental is the leading provider of services to adults and children in the Medi-Cal Dental program (known as Denti-Cal) – part of the Medi-Cal public insurance program that provides health care benefits for more than 13 million individuals and families in California. Western Dental welcomes patients covered by Denti-Cal, in addition to accepting uninsured and privately insured patients, at all of its 240 California offices. 

The new office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
