A trip to the dentist may not be something children usually look forward to, but Dr. Chris Pham and Dr. Richard Grant are working to change that. Since 2006, they have provided clients with the highest quality dental care and orthodontic services. They are committed to honest, reliable service that’s not just tolerable, it’s enjoyable.

“A healthy beautiful smile is everything to us,” said Dr. Pham. “We work hard to ensure the comfort of our patients and strive to create a friendly environment that will have children wanting to come back.”

Located on El Camino Real, just off the 56, Carmel Valley Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics has been in practice nearly six years. By joining forces, Dr. Pham and Dr. Grant offer two specialties under one roof, affording their clients greater flexibility and convenience in scheduling, while providing more comprehensive, individualized, and integrated care.

“Dr. Grant loves making people smile,” said Dr. Pham. “He remembers the day he had his braces off and wants every patient to have that same glow.”

Drs. Grant and Pham are both board certified; they use their additional training to provide the most up-to-date services to their clients. In addition to general dental care and orthodontics, their services include cavity risk assessment, fluoride review, tooth restorations, digital radiology, anesthesia, laser treatment, and tooth-colored fillings.

“I just love everything about dentistry,” said Dr. Pham. “I enjoy getting to know the families and watching the kids grow up and watch their smiles mature.” He grew up in a family of dentists who practice in northern California, but having earned his undergraduate degree at UCSD, he is thrilled to be building his practice in the 92130 community.

Drs. Pham and Grant know that dental visits can be unsettling for children, so they make the entire experience as positive as possible. Toward that end, they employ a caring, friendly staff and use state-of-the-art technology.

“Our office loves technology because it makes the patient experience so much more comfortable and less invasive,” said Dr. Pham. That includes child-sized x-ray equipment and flat-mounted televisions and headsets so kids can watch the movie of their choice during any procedure.

“We work hard to provide a comfortable experience for both the parents and children,” said Dr. Pham, “providing exceptional pediatric dental care from the day they come home until the day they leave for college.”
