Kids Dental Office, South Bay

Providing the highest quality dental care

Our Biological Children’s Dental office focuses in Prevention, including nutritional counseling and teaching special techniques to help your child want to brush and make smart food choices. We use non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures using Laser, Ozone, and SDF. We use biological materials, that are non-toxic, to restore teeth to their most natural state.

Our vision is to provide the highest quality dental care. We are educators. We teach our patients and our community how they can obtain oral health and overall health naturally. We offer uncompromising state-of-the art dental care in a friendly and welcoming environment, where not only the child feels relaxed but the parents do too. We are thankful for the families we have the privilege to serve and serve with happiness, and compassion.

Dr. Kimi

Dr. Kimi was born and raised in Southern California. She grew up with an interest in teeth. As a child she brushed her teeth way longer than 2 minutes (perhaps the only child ever) and thouroughly enjoyed helping her little sister with her loose teeth. Her love of teeth lead her to UCLA where she studied Biochemistry and then to NYU where she received her Doctorate for Dental Surgery.

Family Life

Dr. Kimi and her husband Mike love living in the South Bay and knew this is where they wanted to raise their kids. When Dr. Kimi became pregnant with their first child she began to think not only of her patient’s teeth, but about the overall effect the dental materials used in a child’s mouth could have on their health. Also, how the health of a child’s mouth could effect their entire body. She became a research junkie trying to find the best way to promote oral health and hence overall health naturally.

We Do Dentistry Differently

Here’s how…
We are a biological office
We focus on the whole body and how what you put in your mouth, and the health of your mouth, effects your entire body. We use noninvasive and biomimetic techniques to restore your child’s teeth as close to nature as possible.
We have fun!
Our office is more like an enchanting playground than a dental office. We encourage playing and we love to play! We are full of smiles and were sure you will be while you’re here too. Kids can climb in our fort, play with toys, or checkout an iPad, while Mom relaxes with a freshly made coffee, espresso, or tea.
We are a green office
We use nontoxic ecofriendly cleaners and nontoxic materials, our cabinets and flooring are LEED Certified. We minimize waste by using recyclable products. We use Teracycle to recycle most of what we use in our office. Bring in your old toothbrushes we’d love to recycle them for you!
We are an allergy friendly office
Our office is latex free. We use no artificial air fresheners. We have air purifiers in every room. We use essential oil diffusers to create a relaxing and hygienic environment.
We have a therapy dog
Come meet Chip our therapy dog! Chip loves cuddling in your lap, being pet, and walking around the office making new friends. He is there to help kids feel relaxed and comfortable. Instead of thinking about their teeth cleaning, your child can focus on their furry friend. Chip is licensed by the Alliance of Therapy Dogs and has had extensive training around all kinds of kids. Chip is hypoallergenic, no fur or shedding, Chip has hair just like you and me. He was breed to be a sweetheart. Don’t like dogs, no problem. Let us know and we’ll make sure you’re scheduled on a day Chip is relaxing at home.

What Our Patients Say*

Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions? We’re here to help! Check out our list of FAQs below.
When should my child first see the dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatrics and The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry both recommend seeing dentist at 1 year of age. It’s important to come at 1 year old age to find a dental home; a place where your child can feel comfortable, a place to come if an emergency occurs, and a doctor to call, text or email with any questions. We want to make sure your child always has a great experience at the dentist. This is accomplished by starting young and speaking positively about the dentist. We want to teach you tricks and habits to maintain a healthy mouth for your child, even if there were 5 birthday parties that week. We also want to make sure your child is growing and developing correctly. There are many things that if detected early, we can change easily with early interevention.

What happens at the first visit?

The first visit is all about having fun! We give your child a tour of our office. We show them where all the fun toys are hiding and how to climb into our fort. We work on making your child comfortable coming to our office. We have fun playing around the office and meeting our team. Once your child is comfortable we start the dental exam. We check their teeth, their gums, and tongue. Dr. Kimi makes sure they are developing correctly. We spend time to educate how to have a healthy mouth for life. We tickle their mouth clean. We establish a dental home- a place to call, text, or email with questions and a place for dental emergencies.

What is Biological Dentistry?

In using the term biological dentistry, we are describing a philosophy that can apply to all facets of dental practice and to health care in general: Always seek the safest, least toxic way to accomplish the mission of treatment, all the goals of modern dentistry, and do it while treading as lightly as possible on the patient’s biological terrain. A more biocompatible approach to oral health is the hallmark of biological dentistry.

By making distinctions – some obvious, and some subtle – among the available materials and procedures, we can reduce the impact on our patients’ biological responses. Our sense of duty to advocate for the well-being of our patients should make biocompatibility a high priority, and the fact that there are now so many new ways to make dentistry work better gives us the opportunity to do just that.
