About Alameda Pediatric Dentistry
Welcome to Alameda Pediatric Dentistry, where our mission is to make children smile! Since we first opened our practice nearly 50 years ago, we have built a reputation for providing exceptional dental care that families trust. Today, we serve patients who come from all over the Bay Area to receive unparalleled personalized service and passionate, professional care. As we’ve grown, we’ve modernized our operations and technology to exceed industry standards, but our beginnings as a small-town practice continue to define our culture and values.
We are proud to provide convenient, compassionate, and comprehensive dental care to families in four Bay Area locations: Alameda, Oakland, Pleasanton, and Brentwood. All our offices are custom designed to meet specific family needs. APD is the only pediatric dental practice in the Bay Area with both on-site orthodontics and a fully equipped sedation center.
Our great doctors and staff have advanced training in special needs dentistry and sedation to ensure we can protect our patients in even the most challenging cases. With orthodontic care under one roof, we offer the convenience of fewer appointments, while your child receives more extensive tailor-made care. Our specialists immediately collaborate and work together to solve each child’s dental needs, ensuring a seamless experience for your family.
Alameda Pediatric Dentistry has deep roots in the Alameda community. It is striking that there are several employees who have continued to work with us for more than 30 years. In fact, Dr. David Perry has been with APD since 1973! In addition, many of our staff are former APD patients, including Dr. Sharine Thenard, who became a partner in 2005. She continues the legacy of providing the same attentive, individualized care she received in our practice as a child. dr. Mylinh Ngo partnered with APD in 2008, bringing tremendous empathy and expertise in pediatric dentistry.
When a patient comes to us, they experience a team that operates like a family. We believe that all of our team members are essential to our success, so we invest in their continuing education and professional development. We love to maintain a high level of team involvement so that employee satisfaction translates into consistent care for our patients.
Here at Alameda Pediatric Dentistry, the most important thing is that we make a positive impact on children in the Bay Area for decades to come. Our dentists today not only treat children, but also prepare children for a healthy smile for a lifetime. We really love to make kids laugh!
